England's Bleby back after break
Jon Bleby's return to the international scene has been confirmed by his selection in England's training squad for South Africa.

Bleby pulled out of the programme 12 months to complete a Masters degree and further his fitness industry career.

But the Loughborough Students defender now feels able to return, as does Reading Under-21 forward Andy Watts.

He is also included in the squad after a break from internationals because of work commitments.

Surbiton's Jon Peckett and Cannock's Matt Taylor also return after long injury lay-offs.

It gives coach Jason Lee many more options as he looks to prepare the side for the Commonwealth Games and World Cup qualifying tournament.

The squad will play three matches against South Africa and a further two against Australian state team New South Wales in Pretoria next month.

England squad: J Bleby, G Kirkham, J Goudie, A Wilson (Loughborough Students); N Brothers (gk), J Clarke, S Mantell, R Mantell, A Todd, J Brown, (Reading); J Fair (gk), S Cordon, B Middleton, M Taylor, M Jones (Cannock); J Ebsworth (gk), M Daly, B Garrard, R Moore, J Tindall, J Peckett, B Marsden, B Garrard (Surbiton); B Hawes (Amsterdam).
