6N: Radwan, Lynagh added to England squad


England have added wingers Louis Lynagh and Adam Radwan to the squad as cover for their opening match against Scotland in the Six Nations championship, the Rugby Football Union (RFU) announced on Sunday.

England, who finished fifth in last year’s edition, are due to travel to Edinburgh to face Scotland on Feb. 5, with coach Eddie Jones naming a 37-player squad for the match.

Joe Marchant will be unavailable for the start of the week after testing positive for COVID-19, while Tommy Freeman is unavailable for selection after injuring his hamstring in training.

“He [Marchant] returned a positive lateral flow test on the morning of Friday 28 January. He immediately went into isolation and did not train with the team,” the RFU said in a statement.

England captain Owen Farrell was ruled out of the entire Six Nations championship on Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury.
