Eight current players who would be nailed on for England Saxons caps

We were thinking about the England Saxons teams of yesteryear and came to a realisation that, in a right and just world, the concept would be reinstated immediately.

A mainstay during the early 2000s, the whole thing has been defunct since 2016, but we reckon it’s high time to give it another bash, if only to give these lads a bit of a run-out in an England shirt…

1. Jason Woodward

This versatile back three player qualifies for New Zealand, Australia and England, but if a cap is to come, it is likely from the latter, as Woodward now plies his trade in the Premiership. His reliability under the high ball, kicking game and ability as a counter-attacker earn him a spot here. A Saxons coach would call him, text him and leave him several voicemails to get him involved.

2. Alex Lewington

Nine tries in his first 12 appearances for English champions Saracens shows just how good of a finisher he is. However, Eddie Jones seems to be happy relying on the same old faces, making him free for our Saxons.
