RUMOUR | Marland Yarde offered unlikely homecoming
Fly-half: Stephen Myler
After an injury to Alex Goode he was called up to the England squad in May 2013. He made his début as a substitute for Freddie Burns in England’s victory over Argentina, scoring a conversion.
Scrum-half: Scott Benton
The scrum-half was unlucky enough to find his way to further England honours barred by Matt Dawson, Kyran Bracken and Andy Gomarsall.
Prop: Mark Linnett
The prop made his only England appearance in 1989 against Fiji at Twickenham, scoring a try in a 58-23 victory, which saw the visitors receive two red cards. It was a strong England line-up that boasted Will Carling, Jeremy Guscott and Rory Underwood in the starting XV.
Hooker: Matt Cairns
He was called up to the full England side for their summer tour to South Africa in 2007, earning his first and only cap as a replacement during the first test against the Springboks on 26 May 2007. The hooker though fell victim to the virus that prevented many England players being considered for the second test and that was it for his international career.
Prop: Darren Crompton
Crompton was selected for the tour of South Africa at the age of 34, nine years after his first senior England tour, as a result of his form in the Premiership. Thus, the tighthead was able to win his full England cap when he took to the field during the first Test against the Springboks in Bloemfontein as a replacement for Stuart Turner on 26 May 2007.
