Jonny Wilkinson picks his England backline with Farrell getting the nod

#CENTRES:

  • 13. Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs)
  • 12. Owen Farrell (Saracens)

Wilkinson on Farrell: “He gets excited about the unknown. I couldn’t stand it. Had someone said to me ‘you can have everything you want, sign here, but you don’t get to play any more’, I would have signed it and given up all that passion and enjoyment. Owen would look at that contract, screw it up and call it a disgrace. He wants to go out there and see what he is capable of.”
