Eddie Jones is exploring the depth of the number 9's he has available

At the time, England head coach Eddie Jones said: “Heinz has a good feel for the game but you have got to remember we are bringing him in for this camp only. We never know when we might need these players.

"Look at the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand where Stephen Donald was fifth choice for the All Blacks.

“We might get to the final in 2019 and need to find a fifth-choice scrum-half. Now, potentially, I know who the fifth-choice number nine is.”


With Youngs at 1 and Heinz at 5 .. who would fill the other slots ?

England usually take 3 Scrum Halves to the RWC , but Jones only took 2 with Australia is 2003 and the same with Japan in 2015
