These five England youngsters were tipped for stardom back in 2015 – 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…
1. Charlie Ewels
What they said: The Bath second-row captained England U20 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 had struggled to break back into the England side before earning a recall during the 2021 Six Nations. He’s won 20 caps to date.
