Thirteen tries in 37 international appearances says it all. Neil Back is a tremendous force in an England pack already brimming with stars.
He is a 'hunting dog' type of player with a ferocious appetite for action. His ability to achieve turnovers is second to none and his barnstorming style in open play frequently leaves opposition sides gasping.
A favourite of the Twickenham crowd, Back can be relied upon to work as hard as anyone when on the field and he looks certain to again make his mark in 2001.
