FH: Joe Simmonds (Exeter Chiefs) – Despite his tender years, his cool decision-making and nerveless goal-kicking saw him thrust firmly into the Chiefs spotlight during the course of the season, featuring prominently last season in the Premiership and Champions Cup.
Couple of well executed moments back to back from Joe Simmonds over the weekend.— Ali Stokes (@alistokesmedia) March 5, 2018
Well executed cut out pass for Dollman's try and then some very poised gathering, clearance and tackling on a charging Jackson Wray (see thread).
SH: Henry Taylor (Northampton Saints) – A lively No.9 who boasts superb ball distribution and a keen eye for a gap, Taylor boasts international credentials after representing England under-20s back in 2014, making his debut during the Six Nations before being crowned a Junior World Champion later that year
LP: Richard Barrington (Saracen) – Originally signing to play for Sarries to play in the Anglo-Welsh Cup. he’s become a cult figure since joining from Jersey in 2013. He has developed into a fine scrummager and dependable asset.
HK: Harry Thacker (Bristol Bears) – The former England U20 international, who joined Bristol from Leicester Tigers, was nominated for the Land Rover Discovery of the Season award during the 2015/16 campaign. In an impressive debut season that included a hat-trick versus Wasps and a scintillating brace versus Tigers, Thacker was listed in the Guardian team of the year and was unlucky not to be considered for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

TP: Nick Schonert (Worcester Warriors) – The destructive Worcester scrummager has been on the cusp of Test honours for the last two years, having been called up for the 2017 tour of Argentina, only to be denied by injury, before being called up for England’s pre-World Cup training camp.
