LIST | Five English Youngsters that might earn a call-up in 2021

3. Manu Vunipola (Saracens)

The cousin of Billy and Mako made his senior debut as a replacement against Harlequins in the Premiership Rugby Cup, having an immediate impact by sending Rotimi Segun through for an all-important bonus-point score.

A first Premiership outing followed in May 2019 against Exeter Chiefs and his maiden start came two weeks later at Worcester Warriors.

Vunipola started Storm’s final win over Newcastle Falcons A in the Premiership Rugby Shield and went on to play for England Under-20s in the World Rugby Championship.

What they said: “It might not be long before he gets the opportunity to play a similar role for his country. Despite being set for a season in the Championship, the former England U18 and U20 international is destined for a bright future.”
