“Should start against All Blacks” – Three players Eddie Jones must call-up after this weekend

Despite Eddie Jones resistance to picking in-form Gallagher Premiership players, here are three standout stars who impressed over the weekend for their respective clubs this weekend…

#1. Ben Earl (Saracens)

  • Age: 24
  • Position: Flanker
  • Caps: 13

Mark McCall would never consider starting Maro Itoje ahead of Ben Earl in the back-row. Starting as captain, Earl was exceptional once again this weekend, setting up the winning try as the men in black overcame Northampton Saints.

When asked about a potential England recall, he said: “I’d love to be involved if Eddie Jones wants me. I am competing with so many good players and all I can do is keep playing as well as I can and hope that opportunity comes along at some point.”

Commenting on Earl’s performance, on fan wrote: “Earl should start against the All Blacks. He’s that good.”

“Ben Earl. Just wow. Just in every other international squad, but not Eddie’s England?” said a second.

A third wrote: “Ben Earl and Elliott Daly NEED to be in that England squad,”
