Montpellier and England Number Eight Zach Mercer has continued to make a splash away from the bright lights of the Six Nations.
Offering a brief reminder to new English head coach Steve Borthwick that he will be available for World Cup selection. Mercer looks to be the perfect fit for the rangy wide running backrow that Borthwick’s coach ticket has favoured early in their tenure.
Already signed to Gloucester for next season, Mercer could be a much-needed SOS package of attacking flair for England later this year.
