England head coach Eddie Jones has revealed which England star for him stood out most during the British and Irish Lions series draw against the All Blacks earlier this summer.
Jones opted for Anthony Watson, despite standout displays from the likes of Maro Itoje, Owen Farrell and Elliot Daly.
The Bath and England star impressed at both fullback and on the wing, keeping the likes of George North out of the Test team. Jones says he finished the tour as one of the best wingers on show.
“Anthony Watson was the standout.” Jones said.
“He went there as a borderline starting member, and finished as one of the best wingers on the tour.”
“He took a massive step forward.”
