We pick five players who we think deserve a chance in the England squad heading into the fast-approaching 2022 Six Nations.
#1. Owen Farrell
The England captain would have hoped to play a much bigger on-field role. Unstinting team man as always but England actually looked a better team with him not on the field.
Replacement: George Ford
The 28-year-old’s uplift in form since being dropped by Jones has been incredible with a number of flawless performances in the Gallagher Premiership for Leicester. He feels like a more appropriate deputy for Marcus Smith, and has plenty of experience to pass on to the 22-year-old upstart.
