Curry became the youngest player to start an international for England in 90 years when he made his senior bow in Argentina on the 2017 summer tour.

With England, he won the Six Nations and the Autumn Nations Cup in 2020. In May 2021, he was selected to represent the British and Irish Lions on their tour of South Africa.
