England’s shock Six Nations squad selections

As Eddie Jones prepares to name his Championship party, we look back at some bolters from the past who may have slipped from your memory.

#1. Lesley Vainikola (5 caps)

After enjoying a prolific spell with Gloucester, Vainikolo was called into England’s 2008 Six Nations squad.

After making his debut against Wales, the Samoan winger kept his place on the wing for the remainder of the Championship.

Nevertheless, he was dropped for England’s tour of New Zealand that summer and never earned another cap thereafter.
