The Exeter Academy lock is on the verge of making his breakthrough to the Chiefs first team. The teenager has stepped up to train with the senior squad this summer after progressing through the academy and is a real hot prospect. Bit of a risky choice but we think he has what it takes to be a top player.

Did you know: He was 6ft 3ins and 16-stone at the age of 14.

England’s world-class lock Courtney Lawes is our chosen leader of the side in 2019. The 26-year-old will be 30 when Japan rolls around, and we are predicting he will become a ferocious Captain in the next four year’s. Lawes struggled with injury in the early stages of his career and failed to cement an England starting spot. But he is now a regular, and if he can stay fit, he could have an incredible future still to come.

Did you know: In the summer of 2009 was a member of the England Under 20 team that reached the final of the JWC in Tokyo.
