Six Bath Rugby players retained by England

11 November 2014

Six Bath Rugby players have been retained by England for the forthcoming QBE International against South Africa on Saturday, kick-off 14.30.

Dave Attwood, Rob Webber, David Wilson, Kyle Eastmond, George Ford and Anthony Watson are all in line to be involved in the game, with Jonathan Joseph, Semesa Rokoduguni and Henry Thomas amongst those released.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "The players have responded well and we've had a good few days' training. Roko did some limited training this morning but is unlikely to fully recover from his thigh injury in time for the game so Marland is in the group coming back tomorrow. Tom Wood is still sore from the weekend and sat out training so we are including five back rows to give us options before we announce the side on Thursday morning."

Don't forget that we'll be showing the England game ahead of our Aviva Premiership clash with Newcastle Falcons on Saturday. Gates open from 14.00, and tickets are available now on 0844 448 1865 or online here
