The England 'Abroad' XV that would give any team a run for its money

You'd think in the day and age of the foreign player it would be relatively easy to put together an England XV made up of players no longer playing in England, and that's what we thought. 

Until we started doing it. A few years ago when Shaw, Wilkinson, Sheridan and Sackey were knocking about, it might have been easier, but none-the-less we've given it our best shot. 

However one position we struggled to fill. Hooker. Any suggestions?
