Head coach Eddie Jones is set to refresh England’s squad as his attention turns towards the 2023 World Cup in France.
A number of players failed to impress during the summer tour and are now likely to be moved on to make way for fresher talent.
#1. Danny Care
Following a fantastic couple of seasons with Quins, the 35-year-old recieved a shock recall for the tour down under following four years in the wilderness. Unfortunately for Care, after a half littered with error in he third test, he was hauled off just before halftime.
As Matt Dawson said courtesy of the BBC: “That’s a reflection on Eddie Jones being pretty unhappy about the way England are playing, but Care has struggled with game management at the highest level. And the scrum-half tends to get criticized for the way a team plays.”
With first choice Ben Youngs coming back into contention in the Autumn, Care has very likely played his last test.
Potential replacements: Raffi Quirke (Sale Sharks), Alex Mitchell (Northampton Saints), Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers)
