Leicester Tigers scrum-half Harry Ellis has been called into the senior England squad ahead of this weekend's RBS 6 Nations game against Italy.

His switch from the England Saxons squad is a precautionary move after Danny Care turned his ankle today. He joins fellow Tigers players Julian White and Tom Croft, who have been named on the bench for Saturday’s game at Twickenham.

Care, who was named in the starting XV for the game, is being assessed by the England medical team. A replacement for Ellis in the Saxons squad to play Ireland A on Friday, if applicable, will be announced in due course.
