However, there’s always the risk of being remembered for the wrong reasons. 

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of five unwanted England records players would rather forget. 

#1. Most carded player: James Haskell – 6

No England player has been carded more than the entertaining flanker, who spent an entire hour of his international career in the sin-bin.

#2. Most caps without a try: Joe Marler – 93

The loosehead may have never managed a five-pointer for England over the course of his 93 caps, but it is still within his power to change that as he is still part of Steve Borthwick’s current plans (unless he retires again).

Reacting to his record, Marler said: “Some people might call me crazy but I’m proud of it. Us props aren’t meant to score tries anyway,”
