Jonathan Joseph recalled to England squad for Scotland clash

  • Jonathan Joseph has recalled for the 27-man training camp
  • Joseph’s return comes at the expense of Exeter Chiefs centre Henry Slade
Jonathan Joseph has been named in England’s 27-man squad for a training week in Oxford after he was left out against Italy.

Of the matchday 23 at Twickenham last Sunday, Henry Slade is the only player omitted while Anthony Watson, Ellis Genge, Paul Hill and Mike Williams are also called up.


That quartet, Mako Vunipola and Kyle Sinckler will be released to play for their Premiership clubs at the weekend.

There is no place yet for Billy Vunipola, who took an active part in Saracens’ training on Tuesday.

England are unbeaten in the 2017 RBS 6 Nations and next face Scotland at Twickenham Stadium on 11 March.
