Ben Youngs lavishes praise on England teammate

England scrum-half Ben Youngs believes teammate Tom Curry can become one of England’s greatest ever back-rowers.

Curry, along with Sam Underhill, has transformed the men in whites back-row into a dominant force.

“Being an older member of the squad, you see these young guys come in and you want them to be successful,’ said Youngs.

“Tom is an unbelievably special player. He works incredibly hard and nothing seems to faze him. He’s in this bubble – and he’s just loving every moment of it. Things like that are infectious and I’m sure he’ll continue to grow and grow as a player.

“I’m sure he’ll go on to be one of the greatest back-rowers England have ever had, I’ve no doubt.

“Underhill, though he looks a lot older, isn’t too old himself. Both those guys, and the energy they bring – I’m just pleased and proud of them.”
