“Keeps delivering, week after week” – 5 England players who impressed this weekend


Despite not currently being in Eddie Jones plans, these five players boosted their chances of getting a call-up for the 2022 Six Nations with stellar performances this weekend.

#1. Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs)

  • Age: 28
  • Position: Fullback/Wing

Devon Live: “A really big shift from the Cornishman. You get the feeling he is still playing his way back into his best form, but his defensive play was superb against Quins – as it had to be given they played 40 minutes with 14 men.

“He made 12 tackles – the highest of any Chiefs player – and only dropped off one the whole game. The 28-year-old put in a real shift and was always on the lookout for work. You can’t ask for much more.”
