SA-born lock called up to England squad

04 Mar 2021, 00:13 GMT+10

England coach Eddie Jones has called up South African born lock David Ribbans of Northampton Saints into his Six Nations squad.

Ribbans will be in line for a first England cap when England face France and Ireland in their final two fixtures and comes in as a replacement for the injured Courney Lawes.

Ribbans joined Northampton in 2017 after representing Western Province in 2015 and 2016.

He has been on the England radar before and was part of the national squad in October 2020.

England currently sit in fifth place on the Six Nations table having won only one out of their first three games.
