“10 and Captain” – How England would line-up under Sir Clive Woodward

Below, Sir Clive Woodward reveals the ‘exciting’ England team he would pick with Marcus Smith dropped from the XV.

The team has been put together using the World Cup-winning coaches recent columns for the Mail Online.

BACK-THREE:

  • 15. Freddie Steward (Leicester Tigers)
  • 14. Adam Radwan (Newcastle Falcons)
  • 11. Henry Arundell (London Irish)

“England have players like Adam Radwan available but he is not even on the tour. England do have players with pace, but Jones doesn’t use them,” wrote Woodward.

“Arundell showed he is good enough to start by beating three defenders to score with his first touch in international rugby.
