Wigglesworth replaces injured Youngs for England


Richard Wigglesworth has been added to England's squad for Saturday's Six Nations showdown with Wales following an injury to Ben Youngs.

Leicester Tigers scrum-half Youngs sustained a potentially tournament-ending knee injury in Sunday's 46-15 win over Italy in Rome.

His Saracens counterpart Wigglesworth now comes into the reckoning, having been named in a 32-man pool by coach Eddie Jones.

Wigglesworth has won 27 caps and featured at both the 2011 and 2015 World Cups.

Exeter hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie has also been included, with Wasps' Nathan Hughes set to have fitness assessed before a decision is taken on his participation in the championship.

Like England, Wales won their opening match, putting on an impressive showing to down Scotland 34-7 in Cardiff.
