“Why not?” – England coach reveals reason for Danny Care recall

Danny Care, who has been selected for England’s weekend match against Barbarians, rejoined the national camp after four years in the cold.

“Danny is a competitor. He wouldn’t be here if he didn’t have that focus to go to the World Cup,” said England assistant coach Richard Cockerill.

“He’s in great physical condition even as a senior member of the squad. I’d say he’s very keen to compete for a spot. 

“If he’s playing well enough, he’ll come into contention.

‘I don’t think age will be a barrier,’ he added.
