Tom Wood Recalled To England Squad, Despite InjuryLatest News, Sports Wednesday, October 26th, 2016
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – After staying on the sideline, Northampton flanker Tom Wood has been recalled to the England squad for the autumn internationals.
Coach Eddie Jones dropped Wood since taking charge after the 2015 World Cup, but picked him for the first time despite the back-row injury crisis.
The 29-years-old Wood with 42 caps is part of a 33-man squad named for the four Tests.
Similarly, the uncapped trio of Sale full-back Mike Haley, Saracens fly-half Alex Lozowski and Bath lock Charlie Ewels are also included.
Interestingly, Australian Jones informed that he had been in touch with Wood after leaving him out in January and had been impressed by his “work-rate”.
The fixture shows England are to play South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia on successive weekends, starting with the Springboks on November 12, 2016.
