Eddie Jones’ second choice hooker sustained the injury in a 32-15 victory over Australia during the autumn and was not expected to return until the end of January.

But he has been named in the starting XV and captain for Saracens’ Gallagher Premiership trip to Northampton on Sunday.

“Jamie was nearly OK for last weekend but now he’s raring to go. It’s great to have him back,” Saracens boss Mark McCall said.

England open their Six Nations against Scotland on February 5 with only 500 fans allowed to attend Murrayfield because of Covid-19 restrictions.

Elsewhere, Saracens have confirmed the loan signing of tighthead Gareth Milasinovich. Milasinovich (6’3, 134kg) is in line for his debut after joining on a two-month loan from Ulster.
