James Haskell is widely tipped to feature in England’s back row at this year’s Rugby World Cup. The Wasps back row was given his opportunity through injuries to players such as Joe Worsley, but he has seized it with both hands and looks like a certainty to be named in Brian Ashton’s squad.
The young Wasps flanker has risen through the England ranks having represented the U18s, U19s and U21s before making his full debut in the senior side against Wales in the 2007 Six Nations.
His combination of pace and power make him a formidable asset to the back row, and is certainly one to watch for the future.
