10. Will Collier

The 26-year-old made his England Test debut against Argentina on 10 June 2017 and made a second appearance a week later in the deciding match, scoring a try.

The 19-year-old was called up for their two-test series against Argentina, making his debut against the Pumas before winning his second cap as a replacement against Samoa last month.
