Despite Eddie Jones resistance to picking in-form Gallagher Premiership stars, here are five players who impressed over the weekend for their respective club on the opening weekend.
England finished in a disappointing 5th place in the Six Nations, winning two of their five games against Italy and France.
And even though the World Cup is still more than two years away, Jones says his focus has already turned towards it.
Below are three players the Aussie has tipped to play a key role for England heading into the 2022 Six Nati
#1. Adam Radwan (Newcastle Falcons)
The speedster was in electric form for the Falcons on the opening day, scoring one before creating another in a good showing against Harlequins.
JONES SAID: “He is quick, lightning quick. Sometimes we can’t see him at training he is that quick.
“I remember watching him about six games ago and he caught my eye and then I went up to Newcastle for the second last round (against Worcester) and watched the players live and he scored an extraordinary try in the corner so I thought he is worth a gamble.
“We rolled the dice, brought him into camp and every week he has grown. He is a hard worker, a hard trainer, wants to learn.”
