What happened next? Sir Clive Woodward’s first five debutants

5. Will Green

Total caps: 4

Green had previously played for various England youth teams alongside the likes of Will Greenwood, Matt Dawson, Simon Shaw and Richard Hill.

After making his England debut against Australia in November 1997, Green went on to make 4 appearances for the national team. He was considered an outside candidate to be part of Clive Woodward’s ultimately victorious 2003 Rugby World Cup winning squad.

However, he was overlooked in the end, despite getting his 4th and final cap against Wales in one of England’s warm up games prior to the World Cup, and being in the wider 43-man squad.
