Maro Itoje was talking to Sky Sports after their big win against the Italians on Saturday afternoon in the early kick-off, but the Italians did make it harder for England at Twickenham than France the week before in Rome.
“Yeah, I think Anthony Watson will make a great captain!” Maro Itoje joked.
“I do acknowledge how significant an event like that would be if it does happen but I guess fate will decide.”
“My ambition is to do whatever it is to make my team win. I feel if you campaign or clamour for the role of captain, you are almost wanting it for the wrong reasons.
“I’ve had great captains and for me, it’s been a blessing to be around them because I think being around those have made me a better leader and learn things about myself and be a better player,” Itoje commented.
Will we get a Lions tours this summer?
