We take a look at the young stars of England’s Six Nations squad who could be hitting their prime ahead of the 2019 World Cup in Japan…

15.Anthony Watson

Possibly the future for England at full back, but certainly a star of both now and the future.

14.Marland Yarde

Has been given a chance to prove his worth for England after struggling first time around.

13.Elliott Daly

Set to make his debut during the Six Nations and could be a vital player come 2019.

12.Owen Farrell

Looks set to start at 12 in the Six Nations and could continue as such if all goes to plan.

11.Jack Nowell

Has now firmly established himself as one of England’s key players in the backs.


10.George Ford

Has some questions to answer, but could be England’s go to 10 for years to come.

9.Ben Youngs

Amazing that he is just 26 given the huge amount of experience he already has.

8.Josh Beaumont

Could be set to follow in his dad’s footsteps and become an all time England great.

7.Jack Clifford

Not your typical seven, but could develop nicely under Jones’ leadership.

6.Billy Vunipola

Already an established international whose best years should be ahead of him.


5.Maro Itoje

At just 21, Itoje could prove to be one of England’s all time greats if his club form translates.

4.Joe Launchbury

Another player with huge experience given that he is just 24 right now.

3.Paul Hill

At just 20, Hill could be with England through the next three World Cup cycles if he performs.

2.Jamie George

Already a star for Saracens, George will now be hoping to make an England spot his own.

1.Mako Vunipola

Another experienced player in the pack who is still just 25 (believe it or not).
