England release 11 players back to their clubs

Martin Johnson has released the following 11 players back to their clubs, ruling them out of any further part in the Investec Internationals.

There are one or two surprising names here, including Dave Attwood, Delon Armitage and James Haskell, whilst there are one or two disappointing names such as Chris Robshaw and James Simpson-Daniel.

Anthony Allen (Leicester Tigers)
Delon Armitage (London Irish)
Dave Attwood (Gloucester Rugby)
George Chuter (Leicester Tigers)
Paul Doran-Jones (Gloucester Rugby)
James Haskell (Stade Francais)
Tim Payne (London Wasps)
Chris Robshaw (Harlequins)
David Strettle (Saracens)
James Simpson-Daniel (Gloucester Rugby)
Joe Worsley (London Wasps)

  1. No real surprise for me, and will guess the team will be as follows:

    15. Foden
    14. Ashton
    13. Tindall
    12. Hape
    11. Cueto
    10. Flood
    9. Youngs
    8. Easter
    7. Moody
    6. Croft
    5. Palmer
    4. Lawes
    3. Cole
    2. Hartley
    1. Sheridan

    16. Thompson
    17. Wilson
    18. Shaw
    19. Fourie
    20. Care
    21. Hodgson
    22. Banahan

  2. I’m expecting Tindall to get the nod for starting all the games up to and including the world cup (injury permitting), with Banahan being his understudy until Tindall retires
