It's big year ahead for England, with the QBE Autumn Internationals, Six Nations and the World Cup all coming up within the next 12 months, and all attention is on Stuart Lancaster and his available players.
With this lies the opportunity for players to make a mark and impress for these would-be England stars.
Chief among them is lance-corporal Semesa Rokoduguni, who will be making his full debut against the All Blacks this weekend, and this will give hope to a number of upcoming players to make their mark and fight for an international spot.
But who else will be in contention in the lead up to the World Cup on home soil?
Here are five future England stars, who will be hoping they can prove themselves for their respective clubs, catch the eye of Lancaster and make a name for themselves on the international scene.
- Five players to watch out for in the Autumn Internationals
- James Haskell hopes to play despite health scare
- England name three uncapped players in 33-man squad
