SQUAD UPDATE: Owen Farrell has re-joined the England squad

Owen Farrell will re-join the England squad at Pennyhill Park later today.

Farrell returned a positive test result from a COVID PCR test (taken on Thursday morning) and immediately went into self-isolation.

The sample was reviewed by the lab and determined as a false positive test on Saturday morning and subsequently accepted by NHS Test and Trace today, in line with advice given by UK Health Security Agency.

His subsequent PCRs have also been negative and therefore he has been released from self-isolation.

The England squad are preparing for their next Test match against Australia [Saturday 13 November, 5.30pm KO].
