Just read Jack has re-injured his ankle & been sent back to Exeter for the rest of the 6 Nations, Harry is also and injury doubt as well. What is it with Chiefs & England!
Forgot to sat LCD was called up as cover for Hartley who has a sore neck. Here's hoping Luke gets on the bench.

It's not just Chiefs player. Add Dylan Hartley & Sam Underhill to the injury list too.

I donít uŮderstand why anything needs to change, it is rugby you cannot wrap them up in cotton wool.

It is just unfortunate.

It is unfortunate, but many injuries are also preventable with good man management and planning.

Players are unlikely to announce they have a niggle and risk losing £22k per match, and possibly their place in the EPS if a replacement has a Stormer.
At a club, coaches have finite numbers of players, so will take a more balanced view on selection and training such that both the short term and long term are considered
At England, they have unlimited resources in that they can just keep calling up replacements, so whilst not ideal, there is not the same pressure to weigh up the risks.

Not all England's fault, the players have a responsibility too, but why wouldn't you push yourselves to the limit to represent your country (and pick up a pile of cash at the same time!)
