Watch: Could England’s Jonny May Be The Next Openside Sensation?

England’s speedy winger Jonny May decided to join the national side’s pack against Argentina on the flank to try and bring some much needed ballast to a scrum reeling after England were down to only 13 men. What followed was unprecedented in rugby history.

So fantastic were May’s efforts as an auxillary flanker that he has won plaudits from right across the world of rugby:

Indeed, could the winger finally be the solution to a position that has troubled England since Neil Back’s retirement? Or would his skills be better utilized as a tighthead prop?

Jonny May might have just put the biggest spanner in the selection works that anyone could, and Eddie Jones and his coaches will have some tough decisions to make before the game against Australia next weekend.
