Eddie Jones reveals the five candidates to captain England this summer

#5. Owen Farrell

Farrell missed out on the Six Nations to undergo ankle surgery for the second time this season but he has demonstrated his form and fitness on his return to action with Saracens

There will be question marks over his place in the team following the emergence of Marcus Smith.

‘He’s one of the most competitive players I’ve ever coached,’ said Jones. ‘He’s won 96 caps, the only trophy he hasn’t won is the World Cup — and he went as close as you can get to that without winning it. He’s got a pretty good track record.’
