Northampton Saints centre Luther Burrell has been recalled to the England squad ahead of this weekend's Six Nations clash with Ireland.

The call-up marks a return to the international fold for the 28-year-old, who was famously dropped from the World Cup squad at the last minute by former coach Stuart Lancaster.

Burrell admitted the rejection left him "broken" and was subsequently given time off by the Saints to get over the blow.

However, he will now have a chance to impress new boss Eddie Jones after Bath's Ollie Devoto was ruled out with concussion.
