A press release was sent out an hour ago with the news that we’ve been waiting for here at The Rugby Blog.
Fly-half Freddie Burns has joined the England squad at Pennyhill Park preparing for the game against Fiji, along with teammate Billy Twelvetrees.
Burns replaces Jordan Turner-Hall, who will stay at Harlequins for treatment on an inflamed knee, while Twelvetrees comes in as temporary injury cover for Jonathan Joseph (ankle).
Stuart Lancaster said: “Freddie has been playing well in the Aviva Premiership and, with Jordan needing to stay at Harlequins for treatment, we are keen to have a look at him. JJ is continuing his recovery from an ankle injury and this is a good chance to get Billy in for training.
Will he play a part on Saturday?
UPDATE: Joe Launchbury has also been called into the England squad as cover for Tom Palmer, who has a calf injury.
