Maro Itoje is often held up as England’s star player and future skipper, but Jones opted for his back-row sensation Curry as the man he ‘wants to build his team around’.
Jones said: “One man who’s done remarkably well for England is Tom Curry. You look at the way his game has developed since he came into the team during the last Lions tour in 2017.
“He’s played at 6,7 and 8 for us and I can really see his game developing to another level. He came in as a very strong defensive player but I think he can really develop his attacking game in a similar way Richie McCaw did.”
“There is no limit to where his game can go.”
