Whenever a squad is announced, there are always a few players that a supporter would like to see included but is sad to see them missing out.
To Eddie Jones’ credit, he has done a superb job of balancing youth with experience, raw talent with reliability and consistency, winning back-to-back Six Nations titles.
Nevertheless, even when the popular Aussie is selecting squads there are still a few names conspicuous by their absence, especially this summer’s tour to Argentina when so many players are away with the British & Irish Lions.
We put together an XV made up of those players who for many should be in the England squad this summer.
