Eight Saints remain in England training squad

The eight Saints in England's Rugby World Cup training squad will remain in camp as the group heads to The Lensbury for their third week of preparations.

Courtney Lawes, Lewis Ludlam, Tom Pearson and David Ribbans are all among the forwards group again, joined by backs Fraser Dingwall, Tommy Freeman, Alex Mitchell and Fin Smith.

The squad, which does not include players from Gallagher Premiership finalists Sale Sharks and Saracens, assembled at The Lensbury in south-west London on Monday 26 June as England continue their preparations for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France. 
 
“I’m pleased with the progress that’s been made over the last two weeks and we look forward to another productive training camp at the Lensbury,” said Borthwick. 
 
“There’s still a long way to go until we are ready for a World Cup, but each day we take another step forward.”

Borthwick announces his 33-player Rugby World Cup squad on Monday 7 August.
