Danny Cipriani has selected his ‘attacking and exciting’ England backline for the upcoming Autumn Nations Series, leaving out experienced duo Jonny May and Owen Farrell.
Joining the Mail Online team, the former England international insisted Farrell must be dropped to allow superstar Marcus Smith to run the show for Eddie Jones men.
Check out his selection below.
15. Freddie Steward (Leicester Tigers) – “Everybody at Leicester has been raving about Steward for a while and I would like to think England are as excited at his exceptional attacking potential as well as his towering presence under the high ball, for which he is best known.”
14. Max Malins (Saracens)
Cipriani said: “I’ve gone for Malins on the left wing because most teams have right-footed kickers, so he can work on the pendulum with Steward, who should start at full back.”
11. Adam Radwan (Newcastle Falcons)
Cipriani said: “Radwan on the other wing, but you need to give him licence. He’s that type of explosive athlete who can do something from nothing. I think Radwan will explode into the international game”
