What happened next? Eddie Jones first 5 England debutants

It’s fair to say that Eddie Jones five first debutants are all now enjoying pretty varied international careers:

1. Jack Clifford

  • Debut: v Scotland at Murrayfield
  • Age: 27
  • Position: Flanker
  • Caps: 10
  • Status: Retired

The former Harlequins back-rower started Eddie Jones’ first game in charge at Murrayfield, and looked set to establish himself as a regular for years to come. However, following a succession of injuries, he was forced to retire at the age of 27 in August 2020 due to a shoulder problem. He captained England at under-18 and under-20 level, winning the Junior World Championship title in 2013.
