Luther Burrell, James Haskell in England squad

Luther Burrell and James Haskell are among the names included in the England squad for their upcoming clash with Samoa.

Luther Burrell and James Haskell have been named in the England squad for Saturday's clash with Samoa at Twickenham Stadium.

Northampton Saints centre Burrell has missed his country's recent defeats against New Zealand and South Africa due to a hand injury.

Wasps captain Haskell has also been included in Stuart Lancaster's 28-man party, while Billy Twelvetrees, Calum Clark and Richard Wigglesworth make up the remaining new faces.

"We have narrowed the group to give us more focus in training," Lancaster is quoted as saying by The Telegraph. "It's good to have Luther back in camp after recovering from his hand injury and we'll see how he gets on in training this week."

Bath winger Semesa Rokoduguni has been omitted from the squad due to a thigh injury, but teammate Kyle Eastmond is in contention after recovering from concussion.
