England will head into their World Cup semi-final against New Zealand with a fully fit squad after positive updates on Jonny May and Jack Nowell.
England boss Eddie Jones was sweating on the fitness of his two wingers ahead of Saturday’s clash at International Stadium Yokohama.
“Jonny’s in really good spirits, moving well, and we expect Jack to be fit for selection as well. It’s fantastic where we are – all 31 being available for selection at the end of the week,” said assistant coach Neil Hatley.

May suffered a minor hamstring injury during the closing stages of the 40-16 quarter-final victory over Australia, in which he celebrated his 50th cap by running two first-half tries.
Nowell made his comeback from an ankle complaint against Argentina two weeks ago only to damage a hamstring, forcing him to sit out the four-try demolition of the Wallabies.
