Six Nations 2018: Ben Youngs breaks silence after harrowing knee injury

Youngs suffered knee ligament damage in Sunday's 46-15 victory over Italy in Rome

Wigglesworth has spent time in Eddie Jones' squad having played for an England XV in the Barbarians game in the summer of 2017, but has not featured at Test level since 2015. It's a question you get asked a bit, but the only way to answer it is to play and train well, to look like you are nowhere near done.

"That will be the key over the next few years is trying to actually improve".

Saracens scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth has been called up to replace the injured Ben Youngs in Eddie Jones's England squad for Saturday's Six Nations clash with Wales. A lot of people may get to this age and try to hang on, but I'm not interested in that.

The last of the Saracen's 27 worldwide caps came against Uruguay in the 2015 World Cup but Wigglesworth revealed Jones had told him he was in his contingency plans before the Six Nations got underway.

The 34-year-old has made over 180 appearances for club side Saracens, where he has won Premiership and Champions Cup titles.

"A long time ago I stopped worrying about what I could and couldn't control and had to get back to worrying about myself", he added. It's always good to know what he wants from you.

The report claims that the scrum-half will undergo further assessment this week, but is not expected to feature again for England in this tournament.

"We have an app I was straight on which has all the calls and what's happened in the past, so you can get up to speed a bit quicker than normal", he explained.
