With England likely to rest a few players this summer, RUCK looks at six players who could get their opportunity to pull on the famous white jersey the summer tour to South Africa in June.
We take a look at five players who could be given a chance on that tour:
1. Christian Wade
The international wilderness is the most frustrating limbo in sport and this speedster has been trapped in there for far too long. Wade scored 18 tries in 25 appearances for Wasps last season and has already run five tries this campaign. Very rarely is a player that did nothing wrong in their first game and has shown consistent form at club level ignored, but Wade is definitely one.
2. Dan Robson
Similar to Wade, it’s tough to understand why this Wasps star hasn’t been given international recognition. Robson, despite playing a starring role in Wasps road to the Premiership final, was overlooked for England’s tour of Argentina in the summer, being ignored in favour of 20-year-old Jack Maunder. It’s hard to see why, but Jones’ just doesn’t fancy him.
