James Haskell Call Back for Six Nations England Squad

James Haskell

England travel to Murrayfield to face Scotland in the Six Nations on Saturday. England have included James Haskell in 25-man squad retained for Saturday’s NatWest 6 Nations clash with Scotland at Murrayfield. Haskell is available after serving a four-week ban for a dangerous tackle.

James Haskell (born 2 April 1985) is an English rugby union player who currently plays for Wasps in the Aviva Premiership and internationally for England.

An hour in James Haskell’s company is enough to cover a million topics, and to find he has an opinion on all of them. From social media being the death of society, to how attention deficit hyperactive disorder has actually helped his productivity and – oh yes – rugby union, thoughts come cascading from Haskell’s brain in a frothing, and thoroughly entertaining, torrent.

he flanker, who was omitted from Eddie Jones’ squad for last year’s autumn internationals, was banned for a dangerous tackle on Harlequins’ Jamie Roberts in the Champions Cup on January 13.

The pair missed England’s opening two victories over Italy and Wales after they were given suspensions in January.

Waps’ Haskell was banned for four weeks for a dangerous tackle and Harlequins’ Marler was suspended for six for a dangerous clear-out of a ruck.

Wasps number eight Nathan Hughes also returns to the squad after injury.

Hughes has played only 90 minutes of rugby in the past three months because of two knee injuries, but has been on a conditioning crash-course to prove his fitness for the Calcutta Cup match.

The 26-year-old is in line to start at the back of the scrum, with Exeter’s Sam Simmonds ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Haskell is likely to be given a place on the bench to provide cover across the back row, while Marler is also set to be a replacement behind Saracens’ loosehead prop Mako Vunipola.

England head coach Eddie Jones will name his 23-man matchday squad on Thursday.
