Injury News: England star ruled out of squad through injury
Gloucester number eight Ben Morgan has picked up a shoulder injury on England duty.
The 29-year-old has been ruled out of the Quilter International Test against New Zealand on Saturday having not been included in the 35-man squad preparing for the game.
Morgan was part of England’s training camp ahead of the autumn internationals before being among the players to be released ahead of the first Test against South Africa but it has now been revealed that he picked up a knock in training last Tuesday.
Harlequins centre Joe Marchant has been called up to join the squad for the first time this series.
Tom Curry (Sale Sharks) will be assessed further on an ankle injury he sustained during England’s win over South Africa on Saturday.
