Three best and three worst England hopefuls from round 2 of the Premiership - Ruck

Three best and three worst England hopefuls from round 2 of the Premiership


A number of players are gunning to play for Eddie Jones’ refreshed England team during the Autumn Nations Series.

Plenty of players put in solid performances this weekend, but that certainly wasn’t the case for everyone in round two.

Jones has already omitted Billy and Mako Vunipola, Jamie George and George Ford from a 45-man training group that will gather on Sunday for a brief camp ahead of Tests against Tonga, Australia and South Africa in November.

You can check out RUCK’s team of the week for round two here.

Check out this weekends top performers and biggest flops below:

BEST PLAYERS

#3. Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers)

Leicestershire Live: “Seven tries in his last 10 games for club and country is some return for a loosehead prop whose setpiece work doesn’t suffer as a consequence of his attacking contributions.

“He made a one lovely carry off a Steward offload, side-stepping his way past Kyle Moyle and his appetite in defence was shown to all, with his outstanding line speed throughout.”

#2. Ali Crossdale (Wasps)

Coventry Live: “It was a dream debut for the former Saracens full-back as he scored two tries in the first half. The first one showcased his electric pace, the second one showed footwork that has not been seen at the CBS Arena since Christian Wade’s glory era.”
