Curry, 25, made a brief 34-minute appearance off the bench in Sale’s Premiership semi-final defeat to Bath on Saturday. He now joins his twin brother, Ben Curry, in Borthwick’s 33-player squad.

Newcastle back-row Guy Pepper, who will move to Bath next season, is the only player omitted from the squad compared to the previous week.

The squad will participate in a four-day camp at Pennyhill Park starting Tuesday. Notably, it excludes any players from Northampton or Bath, as they prepare for the Premiership final on Saturday. These players will be available for selection the following week, keeping competition for spots intense.

Additionally, Saracens full-back Elliot Daly will miss England’s summer tour due to the upcoming birth of his first child.

Daly’s partner:

The England star married to his long-term girlfriend, Michelle, with Daly popping the question during a romantic holiday. The duo said “I do” in 2021 after a fairytale romance. 

One month after tying the knot, Elliot paid tribute to his partner with a romantic post on Instagram which read: “One month ago today, I got to marry my soulmate!

“10 years of knowing each other, 4 years engaged, and now finally married. My Wife”. 

Although there is only a year between them, the pair met at the £18,618-a-year Whitgift School for boys in Croydon, south London, where Daly was a pupil and she worked as a sports events organiser.

DID YOU KNOW? It has been reported that when Daly attended his first Wasps training session, he arrived in his school unifor
