1. Ellis Genge

Stepping into the shoes of current captain Jamie George is Ellis Genge, his fellow front-row stalwart. As the current vice-captain, Genge’s selection seems natural, thanks to his tenacious demeanor and vast experience on the grandest stages.

Hailing from Bristol, Genge has carved a niche as one of England’s most dynamic props since his debut in 2016. With an impressive 62 caps under his belt, his momentum shows no signs of waning.

2. Maro Itoje

Maro Itoje has long been earmarked as a future leader for England. His leadership prowess was evident when he captained the England U20 team to victory in the Junior World Championship final back in 2014.

Since his international debut in 2016, Itoje has evolved into a world-class player. A successful tenure as captain could solidify his status as one of England’s greatest players ever. His consistent presence in England squads, including the recent Rugby World Cup and the upcoming Six Nations, underscores his importance.
