- Ruan Ackermann (Gloucester):
South African-born Ruan Ackermann, who qualifies to represent England through residency, has been a standout performer for Gloucester in the Premiership.
The 26-year-old back-row forward brings a powerful ball-carrying game, physicality at the breakdown, and a strong defensive presence.
Ackermann’s ability to dominate in the loose and make an impact both in attack and defense could make him a valuable asset for England in the Six Nations. Borthwick should consider bringing in Ackermann to add depth and physicality to the back row.
