Saracens back-row Will Fraser has been promoted to the England squad after Ben Morgan was ruled out of this weekend's trip to Ireland with an ankle injury.

Fraser has played two games for the Saxons, having received his first call-up last month, and the England coaching staff were suitably impressed to select the 23-year-old for the senior squad.

The RFU confirmed via Twitter: "Will Fraser of Saracens will join squad as cover for Morgan, Lancaster was impressed with his performances in both Saxons games."
