Uncapped Saracens trio named in England squad

By Dominique Stafford in Rugby

THREE uncapped Saracens players have been named in the England squad for this summer’s tour to Argentina.

With numerous key players unavailable as a result of their selection for the British and Irish Lions, the England squad has a somewhat experimental feel to it, and lock Nick Isiekwe, fly-half Alex Lozowski and wing Nathan Earle are among those to have benefited from this by being called up.

Isiekwe, who turns 19 today, only made his first Premiership start in the dramatic win over Northampton on Sunday, while Earle – who like Isiekwe is a graduate of Sarries’ academy – has scored five tries in seven starts this season.

Lozowski has made a huge impact since joining the club from Wasps last summer and has been involved in the England squad this season, but he is still waiting to make his international debut.

However, there is no place in the squad for full-back Alex Goode.
