9. Ollie Devoto

Position: Centre

Current record: 2 appearances, 0 tries

Featured in latest squad? Yes

His two appearances both came in 2016, both coming against Wales. Following four years firmly out of the picture, the 6ft 3in centre was included in Jones’ 2020 Six Nations squad and was an unused replacement for their opening round defeat against France.
