Five Saints in England squad for Italy Test week

Tommy Freeman, Lewis Ludlam, Alex Mitchell, David Ribbans and Fin Smith have all been named in this week’s wider England squad, with the five Northampton Saints players rejoining the Red Rose to prepare for Sunday’s Guinness Six Nations clash with Italy. 

Steve Borthwick has named his 36-man squad for the second week of the championship; and after an opening round 23-29 defeat to Scotland, England will be hoping to bounce back as they head into Sunday’s match against Italy. 

Ludlam – who earned his 15th England cap in last week’s clash – is rejoined in camp by club teammates Freeman, Mitchell, Ribbans and Smith ahead of meeting the Azzurri at Twickenham Stadium this weekend. 

Fellow Saint Courtney Lawes will also be in camp with England this week as he continues his rehab.
