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

#2. Danny Cipriani (Bath)

His chances of an England recall are slim following the emergence of Marcus Smith and his unfortunate Bath debut did anything but improve his chances. Clobbered by Rohan Janse van Rensburg in the second half, the playmaker was hauled off for a head injury assessment, before watching an unlikely victory slip through his new team’s fingers.

#1. Josh Hodge (Exeter Chiefs)

An exciting player to watch but he had a dogs dinner of a performance against Leicester. This guy is meant to be an exciting attacking talent with all the flair in the world – but he needs to improve his shambolic defending and get the basics right. No chance of an England call-up right now when you compare his form with Freddie Steward.
