REPORTS: George Ford will only be recalled by England if rule change goes ahead

George Ford’s Six Nations fate could be determined in a board meeting this week, as England seek sign-off for a larger squad. 

The current arrangement permits Eddie Jones to select 28 players for the Six Nations bubble.

But a proposal will be made at the Professional Game Board meeting for an expansion to 32 players, allowing for extra wriggle room if players have to isolate with Covid.

PROPS (6):

  1. Joe Marler (Harlequins)
  2. Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers)
  3. Bevan Rodd (Sale Sharks)
  4. Kyle Sinckler (Bristol Bears)
