• Brookes bolsters England squad

    Prop Kieran Brookes has been added to England's squad ahead their Six Nations opener against Scotland this Saturday.

    Having made a quicker than expected return from a serious knee injury, Brookes made his comeback for the Northampton Saints this past weekend, and on Sunday was drafted into the England squad.
