Yarde heads back into England squad against South Africa

MarlandYardeQuinsWelsh14SB1005

TWENTY-FOUR players will return to Pennyhill Park tomorrow evening (Wednesday) to prepare for Saturday’s QBE International against South Africa at Twickenham Stadium (2.30pm, live on Sky Sports News HD).

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “The players have responded well and we’ve had a good few days’ training. Roko did some limited training this morning but is unlikely to fully recover from his thigh injury in time for the game so Marland is in the group coming back tomorrow. Tom Wood is still sore from the weekend and sat out training so we are including five back rows to give us options before we announce the side on Thursday morning.”
