#3. Joe Simmonds
- Age: 25
- Club: Exeter Chiefs
The Aussie has come under fire for consistently ignoring Simmonds, who captained Exeter to a Premiership and European Cup double last season. Name-checking him, his time now may finally come this summer.
Like his older brother Sam, Simmonds has come through the Chiefs academy system at Ivybridge Community College – and he’s previously represented England at age group level, including the Under-20s in the Six Nations Championship.
