In-form trio rewarded with England place

England have called-up Joel Tomkins, Elliot Daly and Will Fraser to their squad as injury cover ahead of Saturday's clash with France.

The trio have recently been with the Saxons squad but after impressing throughout the season for their clubs, have now been handed the opportunity to show what they can do with the full side.

Wasps youngster Daly has been brought in as cover for Ben Foden who is still being troubled by an ankle injury, while the Saracens duo of former rugby league star Tomkins and Fraser have been called-up to replace Jonathan Joseph and Ben Morgan respectively.

The Red Rose go into the game as the only unbeaten team in the competition, having previously recording victories against both Scotland and Ireland.

In contrast, the French are yet to win a match but it's sure to be an exciting encounter after Les Bleus coach Philippe Saint-Andre promised to attack Stuart Lancaster's side during the Twickenham encounter.
