‘I’m not saying no’ – England hopeful could play against them this summer

England squad pick Louis Lynagh has addressed the fact that he is still eligible for Australia and Italy.

The Harlequins speedster, who is the son of Wallabies legend Michael, has been part of a few Eddie Jones squads now without being capped.

“It was a great experience being able to go to Paris for that last game and experiencing France winning there, the atmosphere in the Stade de France was amazing,” Lynagh told Rugby Pass.

“Something I will cherish for the rest of my life is my first Six Nations game (as an additional squad player), being able to experience that.

“But the most important thing is if I translate what I have learned in England camp to playing for Harlequins and playing well, that is all I can do and whoever I play for, I would love to play England as I am here and if I get that opportunity and Eddie calls me tomorrow and says, ‘Play for us’, there is no way I’m saying no.

“But it’s just about focusing on this weekend against Montpellier and then the following weekend and finishing off the season strongly and seeing what we can do from there.”

Lozowski, who has an Italian grandmother, could take advantage of the new World Rugby rules surrounding eligibility. The Saracens star, who won the last of his six England caps in 2018, could swap with immediate effect following the rule change.
