One of the country’s most exciting prospects is without doubt Jack Clifford. The flanker has captained England at the under-18 and under-20 level, and if he progresses as expected, he could be an England regular by 2019. Therefore with his leadership qualities we are predicting he will be second in command to Lawes.

Did you know: He was born in Brisbane, Australia to a Kenyan father and an Australian mother.

7 Maro Itoje

Maro Itoje does not turn 21 until October, but he already has Premiership and Junior World Cup winner’s medals in his collection. The latest prize being secured through Saracens’ 28-16 victory over Bath at Twickenham to become English champions. His potential is unlimited and in four years he could very much be one of the best players in world rugby.

There is no doubt that No.8 Bill Vunipola is the member of the current England crop who has the greatest potential. The 22-year old has already accumulated 17 international caps, scoring three tries and could become a stalwart of England teams for years to come.
