5. Marcus Smith for Owen Farrell
Named as an apprentice in the England party for the 2018 NatWest Six Nations, the dynamic fly-half then starred for the England XV side that beat the Barbarians 51-43 at Twickenham in May 2019; scoring 26 of those points in a stand-out performance.
Despite his stellar form for Harlequins, he’s since been in the international wilderness with no sign of a recall from Eddie Jones. However, following Owen Farrell’s recent performance against Scotland, it’s clear as day that England need a more creative number 10 to orchestrate the attack.
