The Premiership leaders scored an extraordinary 14 tries to beat a much-changed Gloucester 90-0 at Franklin’s Gardens and go five points clear at the top the table.

Sleightholme ran the visiting defence ragged as he scored a hat-trick in a match which broke the league’s record home points tally.

Clearly impressed, Cueto wrote on X: “How this kid doesn’t get a look in with @EnglandRugby is beyond me….

“Electric with ball in hand – and always does all the basics well wk in wk out.

“Love watching him play!!”

Greg Fisilau set to be among THREE uncapped players called up by Steve Borthwick this summer

Get ready for a blockbuster showdown this summer as Steve Borthwick gears up for his first tour as England boss, set to clash with the mighty All Blacks twice.

It’s been a decade since England’s last visit to New Zealand, a challenging 2014 series under Stuart Lancaster resulting in a 3-0 defeat.

The memories of the 2008 tour aren’t any sweeter, with England tasting defeat in both Tests against the All Blacks. However, a glimmer of triumph emerged in 2003, as they secured a thrilling 15-13 victory over New Zealand just before the Rugby World Cup.

In this highly anticipated tour, Borthwick’s squad will face a formidable challenge with only two tests against the All Blacks, following a clash with Japan in Tokyo.

Below, we look at three uncapped players set to be called up by England boss Steve Borthwick.

#1. Greg Fisilau

The young No. 8 player, Fisilau, only 20 years old, had an amazing game against Harlequins this weekend, outshining Alex Dombrandt.

His team won 58-26, moving up to fifth place. Fisilau’s outstanding performance on the field was the highlight of the match. The England U20 international has proved himself to be an incredible robust ball carrier, and doesn’t give an inch in defence.

“He had a standout game – one of his best,” said Exeter director of rugby Baxter following the game.

“He has had a great season. There was a head-to-head confrontation going on there about who is touring with England.

“I think Greg put down as big a marker as he could. He was playing Under-20 rugby last year. The physical development and the maturity is all going to come.”
