Former British and Irish Lions head coach and Telegraph Sport columnist Sir Ian McGeechan has selected four England youngsters to shine in 2021.
England youngsters to shine in 2021
1. Joe Simmonds (Exeter Chiefs)
McGeechan said: “Probably the closest of the English players on this list to an international call-up. Simmonds has quietly become an excellent fly-half with consistently good decision making and plays well under pressure. His kicking is incredibly accurate – there was a stage before Christmas when he was 26/26 in all competitions – and he has a great coaching group around him,”
