All the home nations should beware, Lesley Vainikolo has been named in England’s squad for this year’s Six Nations.
Don’t be fooled by his girly name, the Rugby League convert scored 5 tries on his debut for Gloucester, and could be an England sensation on the wing.
Danny Cipriani, Tom Croft and Richard Wigglesworth are the other notable inclusions, whilst Josh Lewsey, Andy Farrell and James Simpson-Daniel (yet again) have missed the cut.
Backs: Balshaw (Gloucester), Cipriani (Wasps), Cueto (Sale Sharks), Flood (Newcastle), Gomarsall (Harlequins), Hodgson (Sale Sharks), Noon (Newcastle), Richards (London Irish), Sackey (Wasps), Strettle (Harlequins), Tait (Newcastle), Tindall (Gloucester), Wigglesworth (Sale), Wilkinson (Newcastle), Vainikolo (Gloucester).
Forwards: Borthwick (Bath), Croft (Leicester), Chuter (Leicester), L Deacon (Leicester), Easter (Harlequins), Haskell (Wasps), Kay (Leicester), Mears (Bath), Moody (Leicester), Payne (Wasps), Rees (Wasps), Regan (Bristol), Shaw (Wasps), Sheridan (Sale), Stevens (Bath), Vickery (Wasps, capt), Worsley (Wasps).
