WORCESTER Warriors forwards Matt Mullan and Matt Kvesic have both been named in the England Saxons squad.

The talented duo are in line to gain international honours as the Saxons take on O2 Ireland Wolfhounds on Friday, January 25,

Mullan and Kvesic will meet up with the rest of Stuart Lancaster's squad for training in 12 days time with the match scheduled to be played in Galway.

Their selection offers another chance for the pair to impress the England boss having made the Saxons squad in July last year.

Lancaster said: "The fact that we have spent significant time deliberating over quite a few players shows how tough the competition is to get into this 65 and the strength in depth that is emerging.

"This is a very important year for England, with the Six Nations and the Saxons games to look forward to so there are some great opportunities for the players to demonstrate their club form at international level."
