Cueto plays down England return
Sale Sharks winger Mark Cueto has admitted his days of playing in an England shirt may well have come to an end.
The 32-year-old featured heavily in the World Cup campaign in New Zealand last year but his last appearance for his country came in the quarter-final defeat to eventual runners-up France.
Since the departure of former head coach Martin Johnson and the introduction of current boss Stuart Lancaster, Cueto has been part of the old guard who have gone off the radar on the international scene.
With the likes of David Strettle and Chris Ashton above him in the pecking order and the talented Christian Wade coming through the ranks, Cueto has admitted his time might be up with England.
He told BBC Radio Manchester: "I'm still available but I understand the situation, I'm slipping out gracefully.
"You always hold a little light but you've got to be realistic. I know I'm not going to play for England again.
"I'd always say I'm available but it's not going to happen now. I'm just going to look forward to working hard and playing well for Sale in my last few years."
