England release winger Nowell back to Exeter

England head coach Stuart Lancaster has released Exeter Chiefs winger Jack Nowell back to his Premiership club and kept the rest of the starting team that played Italy out of Premiership action this weekend.

Lancaster released 17 players back to their Premiership squads on Tuesday but retained the starting side that played Italy as well as Gloucester’s Billy Twelvetrees and Nowell for training.

Nowell has now been released back to Exeter and the rest of the squad has been released and will re-assemble at England’s training base on Monday evening ahead of next week’s clash with Ireland.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said,”We’ve had a good three days’ training including this morning’s session with Oxford University. “

“It’ll be good for Jack to get some more game time and we are looking forward to seeing how he and the other guys play for their clubs this weekend ahead of selection next week.”

Joe Launchbury (Wasps) and Manusamoa Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers) were kept in camp for rehabilitation with England medics.
