Fly-half Owen Farrell is likely to return for England's Six Nations decider against Wales after recovering from a thigh strain.

England coach Stuart Lancaster will be able to call upon fit-again fly-half Owen Farrell for the Six Nations decider against Wales on Saturday.

A hard-fought win over Italy this weekend means victory in Cardiff will see Lancaster's men secure the trophy and record a Grand Slam in the process.

With Farrell absent due to a thigh strain, Toby Flood kicked all of England's 18 points at Twickenham, but is still expected to make way for the Saracens man.

Farrell was influential in the earlier wins over Scotland, Ireland and France which have set England up for their 13th clean sweep in the competition's history.

However, Lancaster is still without forward Ben Morgan, who continues to be sidelined with an ankle problem.
