Congratulations to Josh Caulfield and Marcus Street for helping England U20s to win the Grand Slam. Fantastic achievement.

But neither part of the squad yesterday. As has been mentioned on a previous thread it is not the first time in the last 3 or 4 seasons that there have been no Chiefs in the U20s squad.

Clearly we have talented young players who the coaches take their time bringing through (the two Simmonds, Townsend and Bodilly for instance) so why are our players not getting U20 recognition?

I see that Ollie Dawe started every game of the U20 6 Nations Championship. Is he one that got away??... He was an age-group player at Exeter alongside Maunder and others but the coaches decided not to sign him to the academy (now at Bristol) despite England age-group recognition. Jack Stanley was another player we didn't sign up but is destined for a big future also.

Surely Jack Maunder would have featured if he had been kept at Chiefs to cover our injury problems.

Marcus Street is still a member of the England U18 Squad so did well to get promoted to U20s for some of the games.
I think powers that be thought Jack Maunder would gain more development playing Premiership 1st team at this time.

It occurs to me (having watched The Last Kingdom on BBC2 tv) that Eddie Jones doesn't approve of Jack taking the lead role in the week before a big game, and that's why he's on the bench.

I know one man doesn't make a team but Jack was given no chance at all today!! I thought Eddie called them 'finishers' for a reason but Jack was given no chance and he's been proven to be a great finisher. Today's game was lost by Eddie's choices IMHO (Sm20)

Jack Maunder was a major part of the pre U20s publicity and so, as others have said, I assume he would have played if not required by Chiefs.

As for the other Jack, I think it's his latest hairstyle that's put him out of favour. My wife wondered what on earth he'd done with it this time! As for his late arrival on the pitch in Dublin, I think it would have taken more than him to steady the ship against the Irish storm.
