Elliot Daly and Jonny May are in contention for England’s Test against Argentina this weekend despite injury scares, while Denny Solomona was among those allowed to return to their clubs.
Wing Daly and the versatile May were originally expected to be out of the match at Twickenham, with the former having suffered a medial knee ligament tear and the latter sustaining a hamstring problem.
However, both were named in a squad of 33 earlier this week and they have been retained in a reduced group that was trimmed to 26 on Tuesday.
Fellow winger Solomona – sent home from a training camp along with Manu Tuilagi in August due to “team culture” issues – misses out, though.
The Sale Sharks star joins Piers Francis, Sam Simmonds, Nick Isiekwe, Zach Mercer, Tom Dunn and Charlie Ewels in failing to make the cut.
