Former England captain Dylan Hartley has called for Danny Care to be recalled ahead of what is set to be an exciting Autumn Nations series.
The 35-year-old, who won an incredible 97 England caps over a decade between 2008 and 2018, was a popular member of the Prime Video punditry in 2020 and will return to our screens again next month.
“Good news, the whizz kid, Marcus Smith has been included. He epitomises everything that is attacking for me,” Hartley said at Prime Video Sport’s launch of its autumn internationals coverage.
“Eddie is smart enough, I am not putting words into his mouth, not to pick Marcus and then constrict him to play a different way.
“I will say give him the keys to grandpa’s car, let him take a spin and be surprised if the car comes back.
“I don’t know what old guy they can bring back. Maybe bring back Danny Care, there is a reason Marcus Smith is so good. He puts the ball in Marcus Smith’s hands.”
Prime members can watch the Autumn Nations Series live from 30th October with the Prime Video app on TVs, mobile devices, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Fire tablets, games consoles, on Virgin’s V6 TV Box, the Talk Talk TV set top box, Apple TV, Chromecast, BT TV or online.
