Worsley gets Rees’ England spot

London Wasps back row man Joe Worsley will join the rest of the England squad when they convene on Sunday night to prepare for the RBS Six Nations championship as a like-forlike replacement for clubmate Tom Rees.

England team manager Martin Johnson has confirmed that the 67-times capped Worsley will join the squad as permanent cover for knee victim Rees.
Worsley travelled to Portugal with the rest of the Elite Squad for a pre-tournament training week and now has a shot of playing in the opening round match against Italy at Twickenham on Saturday, 7 February.
The 31-year-old last played for England on the summer tour to New Zealand last year. Johnson is due to name his side on Tuesday.
