Jack Willis makes his first appearance in an England squad for a year after being included among 34 players to begin preparations for Saturday’s final Guinness Six Nations match against France.

Willis suffered a serious knee injury after being the victim of a ‘crocodile roll’ against Italy in the 2021 Championship and only made his comeback for Wasps last month.

With openside Tom Curry ruled out by a hamstring injury sustained in Saturday’s defeat by Ireland, Willis has the opportunity to challenge for a place in the back row.

“Jack Willis returns to the squad for the first time following a knee injury sustained against Italy in the 2021 Guinness Six Nations,” said a statement. “Tom Curry will miss the final week after injuring his hamstring during last weekend’s match against Ireland.”

England travel to Paris tomorrow ahead of Saturday’s game at the Stade de France.
