ENGLAND | Marcus Smith
“A bit of a throwback to my era in terms of his size (just 12.5 stone). But what a huge talent.
“Smith’s progression from Brighton College 1st XV to the Harlequins 1st XV was rapid and well-timed, with Nick Evans stepping back to coach.
“I have watched a lot of him. He never looks flustered on the ball, which is the hallmark of a great player and he has been in and around the England squad without yet being capped. But one to watch, certainly.”
