England once again came from behind at halftime in the Six Nations, narrowly defeating a spirited and youthful Wales team at Twickenham.
Similar to their previous match in Rome, England found themselves trailing at halftime, with Wales securing a penalty try and an Alex Mann score, putting them in a position to achieve their first win at Twickenham since 2015.
However, a try by Fraser Dingwall in the corner brought England within a point, and George Ford’s penalty ultimately secured the victory.
Exploring potential additions to the squad ahead of their clash with Scotland in two weeks time, we pinpoint three players whom the England boss should consider calling up.

#1. Manu Tuilagi
After narrowly defeating Wales, Borthwick confirmed that the formidable centre was on the verge of returning from injury. It’s evident that England is currently lacking a robust ball carrier in the midfield, and with Ollie Lawrence presumably still recovering, Tuilagi appears to be the logical choice.
Tuilagi sat out the beginning of the tournament due to a groin injury sustained in Sale’s triumph over Saracens in December. The 32-year-old played a crucial role in England’s midfield during the recent World Cup, making it probable that Borthwick will call upon him for the upcoming match at Murrayfield.
During the World Cup, Tuilagi faced setbacks, breaking his hand twice – first in England’s encounter with Samoa and then in the third-place playoff against Argentina. Throughout his career, he has grappled with a persistent groin issue in its early stages and more recently encountered challenges with both hamstrings.
