JackNowellChiefsWasps1005SB14

England will retain 17 players for the remainder of the training week at Pennyhill Park.

The starting XV from the game against Italy along with Billy Twelvetrees (Gloucester Rugby) and Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs) will train on Wednesday and Thursday before the whole squad re-assembles on Monday, February 23.

In addition, Manusamoa Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers) and Joe Launchbury (Wasps) will be with the squad to continue their rehabilitation this week.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “We have reviewed the Italy match this morning with the whole squad and, while we were pleased to score six tries and win by 30 points, we all know there is plenty to work on.

“We will release some players back to their clubs this evening as it will be a good opportunity for them to play for their clubs on a big Aviva Premiership weekend and before we get together ahead of the Ireland training week.

“Mike Brown is in the early days of the graduated return to play protocol and will not be training this week. Geoff Parling, Tom Wood and Courtney Lawes will be released back to their clubs for further assessment and treatment with a view to them resuming training with us next week.”
