World Cup-winning boss Sir Clive Woodward has selected the four players he’d like to be called up to the England Six Nations squad.
Picking his own England XV for the Mail , he selected these four and give reasons for his call-ups.
1. Piers O’Conor (Bristol Bears)
- Age: 25
- Position: Centre
The speedster was in scintillating form for the Bears in January as his club won all three matches, beating Newcastle Falcons, champions Exeter Chiefs and Bath Rugby to end the month top of the Gallagher Premiership table earning the praise of BT Sport’s Ugo Monye.
WOODWARD SAID: “He has been in excellent form for Bristol and has real gas. There is no substitute for it.”
