Guest contributor Joseph Young gives three reasons why he believes Bath centre Kyle Eastmond should be in the England squad…

1: Pure Pace

His pure pace and electric feet make him a nightmare for defences everywhere, as he has shown in the premiership for bath against London Irish this weekend


2: Distribution

Owen Farrell aside, since he is really a fly half, Eastmond is a wonderful distributer and can creat space for those outside him better than most other England options for  12. Thanks to his rugby league background, Eastmond is no stranger to Southern Hemisphere-esque offloads and could help England’s dangerous backs


3: The bath effect

With so many other bath players in the squad, especially in the backs, Eastmond could link well with ford inside him and Joseph outside, the kind of cohesion that only comes with playing together for a long time
