Sir Clive Woodward leaves Farrell and Youngs OUT of his England XV

Sir Clive Woodward has selected his ‘all-gun’ England XV for the upcoming Autumn Nations Series, leaving out. experienced duo Ben Youngs and Owen Farrell.

Writing in his column for the Mail Online, he wrote: “I very much like the look of England’s initial training squad for the autumn internationals but the truth is England should have made these changes straight after the last World Cup,

“The 2023 World Cup is of course on the horizon but as ever the key is just to concentrate on winning the next match as handsomely as possible and climbing up the world rankings.”

Making some changes to the team he picked for the Six Nations, here’s his ‘brave’ England XV to take to the field during the Autumn Nations Series.

SIR CLIVE WOODWARD: ENGLAND XV

BACK-THREE:

15. Freddie Steward (Leicester Tigers) – “Everybody at Leicester has been raving about Steward for a while and I would like to think England are as excited at his exceptional attacking potential as well as his towering presence under the high ball, for which he is best known.”

14. Louis Lynagh (Harlequins) – “He is a skilful player with pace and enjoyed a storming end of the season with Quins. He is a hot commodity with Australia and Italy also having a claim but I’m glad England have registered their interest after capping him at age group level and playing a big role in his development.”

11. Adam Radwan (Newcastle Falcons) -“I love his sheer pace and energy. Like Marcus Smith, Radwan must start in the upcoming autumn as he is clearly something special.”

CENTRE:

13. Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs)

12. Manu Tuilagi (Sale Sharks)
