After the great performance by Smith in Harlequins 54-24 win over Bristol Bears, social networks are the channel for requests for the Quins player to be summoned by Jones to wear jersey number 10 and even captaining Rosa.
The opening was key in the meeting against the Bears, with whom they were 7-24 at halftime. Smith successfully converted six of the eight tries scored, one of them his own.
Tabai Matson, former Harlequins head coach, could only say praise on Marcus Smith: “In this system, it is exceptional. Every time he enters his zone he not only creates opportunities but is really difficult for his rivals“.
As a result of the great present, Twitter echoed some local journalists who asked for the call of Smith, who could displace Owen farrell, England captain and starter, and position him as a center.
“@ AndyGoode10: Give the captaincy of England to Marcus Smith now! “
“@neilfissler: If Marcus Smith isn’t England’s 10 starter this fall let’s pack everything up and go home“
Although Eddie jones does not usually take media considerations into account, Marcus Smith’s present puts him in a tight spot to define who will wear jersey # 10 on the next tour of the English.
