England head coach Eddie Jones seems to always have a surprise up his sleeve, and these five call-ups were certainly unexpected at the time.
1. Gary Graham
The powerhouse back-rower had represented the Scotland U20s during the 2012 Six Nations Under-20s Championship and during the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship.
Initially overlooked by the senior Scotland side, Graham received a shock England call up in December 2017, for their Six Nations training squad. He was subsequently named in the English squad for the 2018 Six Nations Championship.
After not winning a cap, the flanker had a change of heart in November 2018 and was called up to the Scotland squad. He was subsequently named in the squad for the 2019 Six Nations Championship and has since won two caps.
