England new boys - James Haskell
James Haskell will offer England a dynamic option in the back row
Age: 22
Position: Flanker/number eight
Height: 6ft 4in
Weight: 17st 6lb

Haskell already has two caps, but this season is the 22-year-old's chance to break out of the shadow of his mentor Lawrence Dallaglio for club and country.

There is more than a touch of the Dallaglios about the outgoing and confident Haskell, and his talents and application have impressed his club coach Shaun Edwards.

"He is a punishing ball-carrier who breaks a lot of tackles and has a real eye for the try-line," said Edwards.
