Tim Stimpson was injured playing for Leicester
Leicester full-back Tim Stimpson has been named in a 24-man England squad for the A international against Wales on 22 March.

Stimpson had been sidelined with a fractured cheekbone and only made his Tigers comeback against Bath last weekend.

Stimpson is joined by six of his Leicester colleagues - wing Steve Booth, centre Ollie Smith, fly-half Andy Goode, lock Louis Deacon, plus back-row forwards Adam Balding and Will Johnson - for the match at Ashton Gate.

Exciting Leeds back Dan Scarbrough has also been selected - together with his Tykes team-mate, lock Tom Palmer.

England opened their A international campaign by drawing with Scotland, but then suffered successive defeats against Ireland and France.

England A team:

Backs: S Booth (Leicester), P Christophers (Bristol), M Cueto (Sale), A Goode (Leicester), P Jones (Orrell), T May (Newcastle), P Sackey (London Irish), D Scarbrough (Leeds), O Smith (Leicester), T Stimpson (Leicester), N Walshe (Saracens), F Waters (Wasps).
Forwards: A Balding (Leicester), A Brown (Bristol), D Danaher (London Irish), L Deacon (Leicester), D Flatman (Saracens), J Forrester (Gloucester), C Fortey (Gloucester), W Johnson (Leicester), T Palmer (Leeds), S Turner (Sale), T Woodman (Gloucester), M Worsley (London Irish).
