England have recalled Bath prop Will Stuart to the 26-man training squad announced on Tuesday.

Stuart missed the England's opening two games against Scotland and Italy due to an elbow injury but now has made a comeback to the squad ahead of the third round game against Wales.

Ben Youngs continue to miss out on the selection while Manu Tuilagi, who is yet to play in the tournament is also left out with Ollie Lawrence continuing to impress.

Prop Kyle Sinckler is in doubt for the game against Wales after suffering a facial injury while lock Courtney Lawes continues to be part of the squad as he undergoes rehabilitation from a calf injury.

“Bath prop Will Stuart returns to the squad, whilst Courtney Lawes and Kyle Sinckler – who sustained a facial injury in Sunday’s match against Italy – will also be in camp to undertake rehab work.

“The camp will take place at The Lensbury, Teddington, where they will be joined by a group of players from England U20s for training sessions.”
