Playing for your country’s national rugby team is typically considered an honor even if you’re picked just once.
There have been dozens of fine Gallagher Premiership players who have represented England, but have somehow been forgotten by many fans.
This list features five current stars you may have forgot once played for England.

The winger knew how to get over the whitewash as his 96 tries in various competitions for Gloucester would attest to. The 30-year-old made his England debut against Wales in a World Cup warm-up match on 6 August. However, he’d play just four times in total for England with two tries to his name. It could, or maybe should have been so many more.
