Three players who made their England debut before their Premiership bow

These three players made their international debuts for England despite the fact they were yet to play in the Gallagher Premiership.

1. Brad Shields

Born in New Zealand to English parents, the back-rower agreed to sign for Wasps ahead of the 2018/19 Premiership season. However, before he even arrived at the club, he was fast tracked and made his international debut for Eddie Jones’ team in June 2018 during England’s summer tour of South Africa.
