Out of the blue, Hughes received a call from Wasps director of rugby Dai Young inviting him to move to Acton. He was scouted as a like-for-like replacement for Billy Vunipola in March 2013, after the England No 8, spooked by Wasps’ dire financial predicament at the time, moved to arch-rivals Saracens. With Wasps on the brink of bankruptcy at the time, it’s reasonable to assume Young was looking to save a few quid in wages, but his offer was accepted and Hughes has repaid him in spades by establishing himself as one of the outstanding No 8s in... He would be a certainty to be included in Eddie Jones’ first England side to face Scotland on February 6 were it not that he still has six months before qualifying on the grounds of residency. But, to the relief of those who have seen the former Kelston Boys High School pupil tear up the Premiership over the past two seasons, Hughes is prepared to commit his future to England after hesitating when the question was first put to him at... ‘When the day comes for me to qualify, if I’m good enough for the selectors and coaches, then I’ll put my hand up for it. ‘There’s a lot of competition out there and some good No 8s with Ben Morgan, Billy Vunipola and Dave Ewers. I’ve got to keep on top of my game and play well week in, week out. Hughes will qualify through residency on June 27 next year, two days after England complete a three-Test tour of Australia which makes a mockery of rugby authorities’ oft-trotted-out line of making player welfare their ‘No 1 priority’. At least, unlike the exhausted players who will be dragged around Australia at the end of the most gruelling season in history, Hughes will have the chance to recharge his batteries before starting next term knowing it will be a matter of when,... ‘Before I came here, looking at the history going back with players like Lawrence Dallaglio and Billy Vunipola, they were big boots to fill and I had to perform,’ Hughes said. I’ve worked on the little things so the big things happen later. ‘This is my third year with Wasps but I think it only kicked in towards the end of last year that one day I could play for England. When 2016 kicks in I’ll start to count down. When the time comes for me I think I’ll be ready. Source: www.dailymail.co.uk
