Jonny May targets England recall

  • Jonny May is confident of forcing his way back into the England set-up
  • The winger suffered a knee ligament injury during an Aviva Premiership draw with Harlequins back in December
  • Anthony Watson and Jack Nowell both impressed for England in his absence
Gloucester’s Jonny May says he is confident of forcing his way back into the England set-up when he returns to full fitness.

May, who was one of Englands better players during the 2015 Rugby World Cup, suffered a knee ligament injury during an Aviva Premiership draw with Harlequins back in December.

The 26-year-old, who has been at Kingsholm Stadium for his whole career, required surgery to fix the problem and was subsequently ruled out of action until the end of the season.



May says he was pleased to see the team perform so well but is hoping hard work on the training ground will eventually result in a recall.

“The nature of international rugby is that there are a lot of good players in every position but I believe I can get back in that team,” he said.

“I just need to get my head down now, do the work and show him that I can get fit for the start of next season and put my hand up for international selection.”
