“I would make him my captain ” – Warren Gatland reveals his five nailed-on starters if he was England boss

Former Lions and Wales boss Warren Gatland, who has been linked with replacing Eddie Jones, has listed his five standout England players for the summer.

#1. Freddie Steward

Gatland wrote: ” Freddie is exceptional in the air and I also really like the way he has been developing as a full-back. He offers an attacking threat, and scores tries. 

“My one bit of advice from a defensive point of view is that for Tom Wright’s try in the third Test, Freddie should have gone hard at a 45-degree angle to close the space down and prevent Wright from finding support from Nic White.”
