Figure image
Louis Deacon has been called into England's Senior Elite Player Squad for the rest of the Six Nations.

Deacon comes up from the England Saxons squad to replace London Wasps’ Tom Palmer for England’s last two games of the competition.

The lock has started the last four games for Leicester Tigers after missing a large chunk of the season through injury.

Deacon, who has eight England caps to his name, joins Tigers teammates George Chuter, Tom Croft, Harry Ellis, Toby Flood and Julian White in preparing for England’s games against France and Scotland, which will be held at Twickenham.
