- Smith selected after strong showing in Harlequins’ victory
- Fly-half one of three in his position in 36-man squad
Marcus Smith has been recalled to the England squad preparing to face France this weekend after his dazzling display in Harlequins’ win against Exeter. He was dropped for England’s fallow-week training camp in Brighton last week but has returned to the squad for the Six Nations fixture against Les Bleus on Saturday.
Smith is included along with the England captain, Owen Farrell, as well as George Ford with Steve Borthwick selecting all three of his fly-half contenders in a 36-man squad. Farrell and Ford were part of the Brighton camp last week whereas Smith was released to Harlequins for game time, having come off the bench in England’s past two Six Nations matches against Italy and Wales.
