Elliot Daly and Kyle Sinckler called into England training squad

Daly is recovering from a calf problem and Sinckler has overcome a torn hamstring.

England have called Elliot Daly and Kyle Sinckler into their training squad for the first time in this year’s NatWest 6 Nations.

The pair are present among a group of 27 players who will be involved in camps scattered across Oxford, Bagshot, Leicester, Saracens and Wasps because of the sub-zero weather conditions.

Wasps’ Daly is recovering from a calf problem sustained after he had injured his ankle, the ailment that prevented him from appearing in the victories over Italy and Wales.

Sinckler has overcome a torn hamstring to make his comeback for Harlequins and is now in contention to supply tighthead cover for prop Dan Cole.

All 23 of the matchday squad that lost 25-13 to Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday are present, with the addition of James Haskell and Charlie Ewels lifting the number to 27.

England have said that the focus of the training camps will be on reconditioning rather than rugby.
