BREAKING: Defence coach Kevin Sinfield set to leave England

#5. Theo Dan replaces Jamie George

Jamie George has completed four full 80-minute stints in this tournament, and setting aside two errant throws from yesterday, his performance has been nothing short of outstanding. Nonetheless, it’s crucial to recognize that neither he nor Luke Cowan-Dickie will be part of England’s plans for the 2027 campaign.

Therefore, the moment has arrived to introduce Theo Dan into the mix, with the possibility of having Jack Walker as a bench option. Dan possesses dynamic qualities, but to reach the desired level and help propel England back to their best, he needs substantial experience in high-pressure matches, perhaps even contests for Six Nations titles.
