LIST | The 5 players Sir Clive Woodward cut from his 2003 squad

The dreaded call sign flashed up on the mobile phones of five England players in 2003 as they were the final five players cut from Sir Clive Woodward’s 2003 Rugby World Cup squad.

Here, we remember the unlucky group of player who only just missed out on England’s triumph down under.

1. Austin Healey

The versatile back flew out to Australia as injury cover for the victorious 2003 Rugby World Cup, however he was never officially added to the squad after certain players recovered, meaning he was unable to pick up a medal for the success despite flying out to Australia. No wonder he’s still bitter.

Where is he now? Working as pundit/co-commentator for BT Sport’s excellent rugby coverage
