12 players who won fewer England caps than you think

4. Andy Goode (17 caps)

Andy Goode was for many years the metronomic core of Leicester Tigers’ backline, a reliable goal-kicker and an excellent tactician. However, his international career did not take off as he would have wanted with the fly-half coming in and out of the squad on a regular basis.

5. Jason Robinson (51 caps) 

When you consider that Mike Tindall and Jonny Wilkinson, who both suffered significant injury lay-offs, won a hefty more amount of caps it’s somewhat surprising to see the speedster only got half a century of caps. To put in perspective, Owen Farrell is only 27, yet has already accumulated 66 caps. Robinson is still an absolute legend nevertheless!

6. David Flatman (Eight caps)

The now pundit for ITV, BT Sport and Channel 5 speaks a very good game but his opportunities at international level were not forthcoming. He won his first full caps as a replacement in the Tests against South Africa on the summer tour in 2000 but never really established himself as the first choice, finding himself behind Graham Rowntree in the pecking order.
