The five best players who NEVER won an England cap

5. JOHN WELLS

Playing at blindside flanker, he played for England U-16, U-18, Students, U-23 and England ‘A’. He was not capped for England, though he did play in a non-cap international against Italy. Wells made his debut for Leicester Tigers in 1982 away against Harlequins, and he went on to play for them over 360 times, captaining the side from 1991-93. He is particularly noted for playing in a back row with England internationals Dean Richards at number eight and Neil Back at openside.
