Wonder try from Exeter Chiefs 20-year-old reveals just how much depth England have in back row
England rugby and back row depth, two phrases that seem to be somewhat synonymous in recent times. A wonder try from Exeter Chiefs’ youngster Richard Capstick shows just how far they have come.
This weekend, yet another English youngster made a name for themselves in the Gallagher Premiership. Exeter Chiefs back row became the spitting image of Tom Croft when he scored his sensational try against France in 2012.
England is blessed with one of the deepest options at back row cover in the world.
England’s top flanker options…
Sam Underhill – Bath
Tom Curry – Sale
Lewis Ludlam – Northampton
Jack Willis – Wasps
Ted Hill – Worcester
Ben Earl – Bristol
Aaron Hinkley – Exeter Chiefs
Ben Curry – Sale
The list grew that bit longer this weekend after the Exeter youngster Capstick scored a sensational try for the men from Devon against Wasps.
- Tom Curry should be the first name on the list for the Lions Tour – Stunning new video is proof
- Sam Underhill player cam versus Wales proves how devastatingly effective his is in world rugby
Here is the moment the young flanker turned into a young Tom Croft with a trailblazing run through the middle of the Wasps defence.
The young flanker took the ball off the 10, before putting in a sensational solo step.

England will need to think long and hard when they pick their back row for the upcoming Six Nations. With so many options to pick from, how will they pick.
For us, it looks like Vunipola, Curry and Underhill. But even in the bench there is a massive amount of competition.
