At around 3pm today the England rugby coach made an announcement about who would be coming into the squad to replace the injured Jack Willis following on from his knee injury on the weekend.

Wasps coach Lee Blackett confirmed earlier this week that the flanker had not suffered ACL damage but ‘had done pretty much everything in his knee’ on Saturday against Italy in the Six Nations.

Here was the news from England rugby that caused a stir on social media earlier today.

Fans who had hoped to see Sam Simmonds in an England jersey were left disappointed to learn that he would not be coming into the team to replace the injured Jack Willis.

Here was the reaction of former-England rugby fly-half Andy Goode at the news today.

Other fans were quick to pounce on the news – with some fans questioning why Alex Dombrandt couldn’t step into the squad to replace Willis.

Sam Simmonds has been in sensational form for Exeter Chiefs this season with a number of standout performances for the reigning Premiership champions.

Check out this run from the 26-year-old last weekend.
