The England captain has not featured since the Autumn Nations Series in November but Sarries boss Mark McCall insists that the 30-year-old is on track to be back on the field before the end of the month.

“His recovery is going positively, and we’re certainly hoping he’ll be back playing towards the end of March – exactly when that will be I’m not sure,” he told reporters. “It’s weeks rather than months.

“He’s not doing any training with the team, he’s still with our performance team, but he’s actively involved in meetings, preparation and that kind of thing.

“He is getting closer to being able to play again so there are only hopefully three, four, five weeks before he plays again.

“He is excited about getting his boots back on, getting out there and helping the team again. He always has got a huge influence anyway, just how smart he is about the game and how good he is at helping a lot of the individuals in the team.”
