Chipperfield's Will Fraser has been promoted to the full England squad for the first time after Ben Morgan was ruled out of this weekend's trip to Ireland with an ankle injury.

Fraser, who is from Chipperfield and went to school in Berkhamsted, has played two games for the England Saxons, having received his first call-up last month and the national team's coaching staff were suitably impressed to select the 23-year-old for the senior squad.

The RFU confirmed via Twitter: "Will Fraser of Saracens will join the squad as cover for Morgan, Lancaster was impressed with his performances in both Saxons games."
