The four England U20 stars who went onto represent other countries…

Sometimes players who represent England U20s don’t go onto represent the full national side and instead look to other countries for Test experience.

Only three individuals in history have made the switch and here they are:

1. Ross Moriarty (Wales)

Moriarty made his international debut with England Under-18 against France in February 2012. He went on to score tries against Scotland and Wales in his first four appearances and helped England to become European champions in Spain.

He started the first two games for England in the 2013 under-20 Six Nations but was unavailable for the final three matches after being red carded in the match against Ireland in Athlone. He played in every match of the 2013 IRB Junior World Championship and scored three tries against the USA in a pool game.

In the 2014 IRB Junior World Championship Moriarty won the tournament with England with impressive performances throughout the whole tournament.

However, Moriarty made his full international debut in the starting line up for Wales versus Ireland on 8 August 2015 and then went onto play for the British & Irish Lions during their 2017 tour of New Zealand.
