Updated England squad for Rugby World Cup

England will return to Pennyhill Park on Sunday to resume their preparations for the QBE Internationals and the Rugby World Cup.

England will play France at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday, August 15 and Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “We had a great two-week camp in Denver where the entire squad worked extremely hard and were exceptional in the way they went about the training. That has continued this week and competition for places has been very intense.

“It has been difficult to narrow down the squad as everyone has contributed and given their all. But what I have said to those guys who are not coming back in on Sunday is that the door is not closed by any means; they are only an injury away and there is a lot of international rugby to be played this season, culminating in a three-Test tour to Australia.

“Overall we are in good shape. Both Nick Easter and Ben Morgan are now fit and we want to give them both opportunities to train fully and prove their form and fitness next week.”
