Excelling in high-profile matches, alongside two fine seasons for Wasps, launched Elliot Daly into the England squad for the 2016 RBS 6 Nations.
He was a travelling reserve for the opening game against Scotland at Murrayfield and made his debut in the third match of the Championship against Ireland at Twickenham.
He celebrated his first senior start for his country with a monster left-footed penalty against South Africa in November 2016 and the following week had his maiden Test try against Fiji.
Elliot announced his return to the side February 2017 with a huge penalty against France and that was followed up with a brilliantly-taken try with four minutes left to beat Wales in Cardiff.
Next up, he produced an impressive try-scoring performance against Italy at Twickenham. Elliot went on to win selection for the 2017 British & Irish Lions in New Zealand.
Elliot started all three Tests on the left wing against the All Blacks, playing a prominent part in a memorable try scored by Sean O’Brien in the opening match and landing a vital penalty from inside his own half in the drawn third Test.
Just months later, his brilliant try from a 35-metre hack-on helped England to a 30-6 victory over Australia at Twickenham in November 2017, a record winning margin in the fixture.
He scored two more tries against Samoa the following week. His second was an outstanding effort when he initially beat five opponents while cutting in from the left wing on the way to the line.
He added another two tries against Ireland at Twickenham on the final day of the 2018 NatWest 6 Nations, and took his international tally to nine with a try in the first Test against South Africa in June of that year.
Elliot has also had the unusual honour of playing against England, and the British & Irish Lions, for the Barbarians in May and June 2013.
Not only that, Elliot scored one of the Baa-Baas’ two tries at Twickenham in a 40-12 defeat and landed a penalty against the Lions in Hong Kong a week later.
Croydon-born Elliot touched down in his second match for England U18 in the 33-16 win over France at Newbury in February 2010, enhancing a reputation he created at England U16 level.
It signposted a vivid route to success with the U20 side, for whom he scored eight tries in nine matches in 2010/11 and went on to play in ten of England’s 11 games at that level.
His Saxons debut was against Ireland Wolfhounds in Galway in January 2013 and his fifth cap at that level was also against them at Cork two years later.
He studied for A-levels in maths, geography and PE at Whitgift School, made his senior Wasps debut against Leinster in a 2010/11 warm-up and completed 100 appearances for the club in the 20-20 draw with the same opponents in the Champions Cup in January 2015.
He was also shortlisted for the 2014/15 Premiership Player of the Season award and was nominated for the European Player of the Year award in 2015/16.
He previously attended Cumnor House School in south Croydon, first played for Beckenham from the age of five and was there until 2006 before spending three years with Dorking up to 2009.
County honours for Surrey U15 and U16 preceded appearances for London & SE and England U16, for whom he played in the Four Nations tournament in Wales.
Cricket is his other sporting speciality. He represented England U15, London & SE U16 and Surrey U8-U17 and their academy.
His brother Miles has been part of the London Irish Rugby Academy and played for Cambridge University in the 2009 U21 Varsity Match.
