Three overseas players who could be capped by England this Autumn

These three have shown enough ability or promise to suggest they may be future England stars in waiting.

Foreign-born stars, such as Sam Underhill and the Vunipola brothers, have already shown how integral they can be for the Red Rose after making the step up to International rugby.

#1. Ruan Ackermann

  • Age: 25
  • Club: Gloucester
  • Position: Back-row
  • Place of birth: Pretoria, South Africa

His Dad Johan Ackermann, who departed as Gloucester boss for Japan last August, confirmed that his son will be staying with the Cherry & Whites to pursue international honours with the men in white.
