Webber called up by England

23 February 2015

Bath Rugby hooker, Rob Webber, has been called into the England training squad this evening.

Webber has joined up as cover for Tom Youngs, whose training tomorrow (Tuesday) will be limited following Leicester Tigers' Aviva Premiership game against London Irish yesterday (Sunday).

Worcester Warriors fullback Chris Pennell has also been drafted into the squad as cover for Mike Brown, who is still going through the graduated return to play concussion protocol.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "Chris Pennell did well on the New Zealand tour and with Mike still in the early stages of the graduated return to play protocol we wanted another fullback to train along with Alex Goode. Courtney Lawes, Geoff Parling and Tom Wood are all expected to train tomorrow and we'll have some selection decisions to make over the next 24 hours before we release some players back to their Aviva Premiership clubs on Tuesday."

In addition, Manusamoa Tuilagi will also be in camp continuing his recovery from injury.
