Tom Curry is the man of the moment for England in 2021, and England have shared a clip which shows just why he’s one of the brightest young prospects in the world.
The 22-year-old has been playing beyond his years ever since making a historic debut for the national team back in 2017, aged just 18.
He was named Player of the Match in a match against the Barbarians in May that year, before his first capped appearance came in a dramatic 38-34 win away against Argentina in June.
In doing so he became the youngest player ever to start at flanker for England and the youngest England forward since 1912.
Ever since, he has gone from strength to strength, already collecting an admirable 32 caps and scoring three tries along the way.
The Sale Sharks star looks increasingly likely to get a call up for the Lions later this year to add another remarkable achievement to his young career.
