3. Ryan Mills (Wasps)
The centre arrived at the black and golds with the intention of putting himself in the shop window for a potential England call-up. Instead, he’s been in and out of the team, and more often than not found himself playing second-fiddle to a 36-year-old Jimmy Gopperth.
Things recently went from bad to worse as it was confirmed he’s broken a bone in his foot and is likely to be ruled out for three months. To add insult to injury, all his departure from Worcester has done is allow exciting prospect Ollie Lawrence to get more minutes, and now he looks set to be the man called-up by Eddie Jones.
