Emerging talent Lewis Ludlam is already making his mark for Eddie Jones’ side and has now been selected for England’s 2019 Rugby World Cup squad.
Here are five things you might not know about the 23-year-old flanker.
1. Initial disappointment
Despite being initially released by Northampton a few years ago, Ludlam’s tenacity and talent not only led to him being recalled for Saints’ Under-18s, but move up into the Senior Academy on a full-time basis.
2. Position change
Originally a centre, he has now found a home in the back row for both Club and country.
