Four members of the England squad have returned to their clubs in order to be available for this weekend's Guinness Premiership games.
Leicester duo Richard Blaze and Ben Kay are being given the opportunity to get more game time ahead of the 32-man squad reconvening on November 1, while there is adequate cover at wing and in the back row to enable David Strettle and Steffon Armitage to return to Harlequins and London Irish respectively.
It is expected that further players will be released back to their clubs after training this afternoon.
The RBS 6 Nations Championship 2015 was not poised to go down as one of the more "vintage" Championships, though there was great anticipation as the action headed into its final day. What transpired was something that nobody could foresee: "The Greatest Day in Rugby's Greatest Championship."
