LIST | Hilarious photos rugby players posted before they were famous

Pictures they never wanted people to see again…

LIST | 5 England players who could swap nations for 2023 World Cup

We’ve not included Billy Vunipola, as we think he is likely to be still in the reckoning for England in three years time.

1. Manu Tuilagi (Samoa)

  • Current number of caps: 41
  • Age at the start of RWC 2023: 32
  • Did you know:  He was named Manusamoa, after the name of the Samoan national team

The England centre, who was born in Fogapoa and came to the UK at the age of 13, is one of a clutch of Pacific Island players whose eligibility status could change if the restrictions are relaxed. He is the younger brother of Freddie, Henry, Alesana, Anitelea and Sanele Vavae Tuilagi, all of whom are Samoan internationals and also played for Leicester. It would be fantastic for the powerhouse to complete the set.
