Ranking Eddie Jones’ first 10 England debutants

7. Teimana Harrison

Position: Back-row

Current record: 5 appearances, 1 try

Featured in latest squad? No

All five of his caps came in 2016.

Harrison received his first call up to the senior England squad by coach Eddie Jones on 8 May 2016 for a three-day training squad, and made his full England debut in a match against Wales on 29 May 2016.


6. Ben Te’o

Position: Centre

Current record: 16 appearances, 2 tries

Featured in latest squad? No

The centre had been a regular under Jones, but missed the 2019 Rugby World Cup following an off-field altercation with Mike Brown at England’s summer training camp in Italy. He subsequently moved to Toulon, ending any chance of him getting a recall.


5. Nathan Hughes

Position: Number 8

Current record: 20 appearances, 1 try

Featured in latest squad? No

One of the most dominant forwards in the Gallagher Premiership, standing at 6’5” and weighing over 126kg, Hughes made his debut against South Africa in 2016.

He went onto become a regular in the next three years but fell out of favour in 2019 and hasn’t received a recall since.


4. Ellis Genge

Position: Prop

Current record: 16 appearances, 2 tries

Featured in latest squad? Yes

Genge made his debut for his country as a replacement in a 27-13 win over Wales at Twickenham Stadium in 2016.

The prop was included in the squad for England’s 2016 touring party to Australia and won the 2016/17 Land Rover Discovery of the Year award.

He has become a regular member of England squads under Eddie Jones and was part of the squad that reached the 2019 Rugby World Cup final.
