Gloucester speedster Louis Rees-Zammit has told England boss Eddie Jones he has no interest in playing for England, according to reports.
The flying teenager made a major breakthrough in the month of December, scoring five tries, which included a new record when he became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in a Premiership Rugby match, earning him the player of the month.

This prompted interest from the England boss, who made contact with the 18-year-old to discuss the possibility of him waiting to qualify for the men in white on residency grounds.
However, the Daily Mail has reported that Rees-Zammit ‘made it clear’ to Jones that he is committed to Wales, his country of birth.
