England’s try of the decade announced after 60,000 votes

England Rugby fans have voted Manu Tuilagi’s early try against New Zealand in 2019 as their Try of the Decade.

His second-minute try set the tone for a pulsating England performance against New Zealand in the semi-final of the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

England went on to defeat New Zealand 19-7 and seal a place in the World Cup final.

Tuilagi beat off stiff competition to win the vote on England Rugby social media channels with over 60,000 fans choosing his try as their favourite from the past 10 years.

Chris Ashton’s length of the field try against Australia in 2010 was second in the vote.

Back in 2015, these five England youngsters were tipped for stardom

Back in 2015, Wales Online released a list of 25 potential stars of the future who could become household names.

Five England youngsters made the cut, but they’ve had mixed fortunes to say the least in the five years that have followed.

Here’s what they’re up to now…

What they said:  The Bath second-row captained England to Six Nations success after being part of the World Cup winning side from last year in New Zealand.

Where they are now: A senior-call up was not far behind with Ewels showing his world-class pedigree in the Bath Rugby ranks. The second rower made his bow off the replacement bench during England’s 58-15 victory over Fiji in 2016.  Still with Bath, the 24-year-old has struggled to break into the England side on a regular basis due to the consistency of Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Joe Launchbury and Courtney Lawes, but has accumulated 12 caps.
