Nathan Hughes and Courtney Lawes to miss England-Ireland clash

Nathan Hughes and Courtney Lawes to miss England-Ireland clash

Exeter back rower Don Armand has been called into a 32-man England squad to prepare for their final Six Nations game against Ireland on Saturday.

Armand won his only Test cap on the summer tour of Argentina last June, but he has seemed surplus to requirements since.

Hughes limped off in the 24th minute at the Stade de France after taking a heavy blow to his left knee, but Lawes did manage to finish the match.

Having lost two starting back rows, the path is clear for James Haskell and Sam Simmonds to be promoted from the bench duties they performed against France.

Both Hughes and Lawes were omitted from a 32-man training squad announced Sunday ahead of England's tournament finale at home to Ireland on March 17.

Captain Dylan Hartley was included - alongside both Jamie George and Luke Cowan-Dickie - despite sitting out the France match with injury, while there was also a recall for prop Alec Hepburn and lock Nick Isiekwe.

Backs: Mike Brown, Danny Care, Elliot Daly, Nathan Earle, Owen Farrell, George Ford, Jonathan Joseph, Alex Lozowski, Jonny May, Henry Slade, Marcus Smith (apprentice player), Denny Solomona, Ben Te'o, Anthony Watson, Richard Wigglesworth.
