“No thanks” – Five England players who WON’T be going to the World Cup

#5. Lukę Cowan-Dickie

It’s now looking incredibly unlikely that the Exeter Chiefs hooker will recover from a mix of ankle and neck issues to be fit for the Rugby World Cup.

Contrary to previous reports in The Rugby Paper linking the hooker with a move to Stade Francais following the collapse of his move to Montpellier,  the Mail Online has reveals that he will be joining Sale Sharks.

According to the latest report, Cowan-Dickie is currently experiencing a slow and frustrating recovery from neck surgery.

Nonetheless, he has already completed one medical examination at Sale Sharks, and if he successfully completes a second one, he will join Jonny Hill and Tom O’Flaherty in making the move from Exeter to the Sharks.
