- British and Irish Lions
It is even blasphemy to ask this question. Is England’s greatest player of all time good enough to play for England?
But that’s the question Rugby youtube Rugby Analyst asked.
For us, this is obvious. Yes, his form dropped in 2021, but does that mean he shouldn’t be selected now? Of course he should.
Madness to suggest otherwise. The memories of the English fans seem indeed very short.
The 30-year-old has been integral to the Saracens’ success for more than a decade since his debut in 2008.
He graduated from the Academy the same year alongside Jamie George, George Kruis, Jackson Wray and Will Fraser, and became an established England international, captaining his country in the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
Farrell collected 17 points in Saracens’ first-ever Premiership Final victory and has since helped Mark McCall’s side win four more national titles as well as three European Cups.
The British and Irish Lions opener has made more than 200 appearances for Sarries.
