We take a look at how England’s 31-man Rugby World Cup squad may look when the tournament begins in September…
With Dylan Harlet suspended both Youngs and Webber go due to experience, whilst George pips Cowan-Dickie for the back-up role.
There is an argument for Corbisiero in here, whilst Brookes goes due to his versatility, other than that there are no great surprises.
Lawes and Launchbury are likely to start, whilst Attwood and Parling provide enough difference to compliment one another as back ups.
There’s a good mix to the back row with all three flankers able to cover six or seven, whilst Morgan and Vunipola can interchange.
Youngs look likely to start whislt Care and Wigglesworth both offer points of difference depending on the opposition.
The two regulars for England at 10 over the last couple of years will battle it out, with cover coming from Slade and Goode.
Barritt provides defensive solidity, whilst Joseph offers flair. Burrell can cover either 12 or 13 whilst Slade is a great utility player to have around.
The majority of the players here can cover either full back or wing, whilst Ashton is included over others due to his prior World Cup experience.
