Narraway handed England chance

Gloucester No8 Luke Narraway has been drafted into the England squad ahead of the Six Nations as a replacement for injured Northampton back-rower Tom Wood. Narraway, 28, has seven caps, the most recent against Ireland at Croke Park two years ago. Wood, who had been touted as a potential successor to Lewis Moody as England captain, has been ruled out of the tournament’s first two matches with a damaged toe. England begin their Six Nation’s defence on 4 February against Scotland at Murrayfield in what will be interim coach Stuart Lancaster’s first game in charge.
