RUGBY: Bath trio in contention for England
11:13am Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Sport
BATH trio Dave Attwood, David Wilson and Kyle Eastmond have retained their places in the England squad for the upcoming QBE Internationals against Australia, Argentina and New Zealand.
The three, who all toured Argentina with England in the summer, will join up with head coach Stuart Lancaster's England squad in Leeds on Monday (October 21) before returning to their Surrey training base at Pennyhill Park on October 27. England take on Australia at Twickenham on November 2.
Attwood is included despite currently being out of the Bath side while he recovers from a rib injury sustained in Bath's Aviva Premiership win over London Irish last month.
England have called up Henry Trinder for next month's QBE Internationals as one of four changes to their elite player squad.
Trinder, the Gloucester centre, is joined by Exeter flanker Tom Johnson, Saracens centre Joel Tomkins and Northampton centre Luther Burrell.
Lancaster said: "As a coaching group we have watched a lot of rugby and we are pleased with the form of the squad. The camp is an important part of our preparation and we are looking forward to meeting up.''
