“A proper bolter” – Will Greenwood’s five England World Cup players to watch

#3. Henry Arundell

  • Position: Winger
  • England caps: 7

Arundell was the Player of Match against Scotland on his U20 debut in February 2022, scoring a length-of-the-field try in the 41-24 victory in Edinburgh.

His first Premiership match in the London Irish starting team against Bristol Bears the following week was equally memorable, ultimately leading to a first call up for a senior England training squad after only six Premiership appearances.

Included in England’s summer tour of Australia, Henry made his debut off the bench in the first international Test, scoring a remarkable solo try with his first touch of the ball. He went on to feature in the following Guinness Six Nations campaign, before being named in Steve Borthwick’s squad for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France.

Greenwood wrote: “There is a lot of noise for a kid with just a handful of seven caps. Wonder-tries against Toulon and Australia will do that.

“Every time I am on Instagram, he is doing squats. He will have proven that he can play in a system. A maverick in a system is fine. A maverick who cannot play in one is struggling.”
