“Big decision” – Henry Arundell handed Six Nations ultimatum by Steve Borthwick

Young talent Henry Arundell is at a crossroads as he contemplates a return to the Gallagher Premiership to secure his spot in the upcoming Six Nations for England.

The 21-year-old, who showcased his skills with remarkable performances for Racing 92 in France’s Top 14, may find himself back on English soil with Bath emerging as the frontrunners to sign him for the next season.

Despite previous assurances from Chief Executive Bill Sweeney at the World Cup in October, where he stated that Arundell would remain eligible for the 2024 Six Nations despite his stint in France, recent developments suggest a change in stance.

The RFU, along with Steve Borthwick, seems to have reconsidered their position, linking Arundell’s Six Nations availability to a conditional return to England for the 2024/25 season.

The landscape for Arundell’s international future appears to be shifting, adding another layer of intrigue to the young speedster’s career.
