Barritt finally gets the call

Brad Barritt is currently on his way to Sydney, to join up with the England squad ahead of the last two games of their Australian tour.

The former Sharks midfielder, controversially omitted from the initial touring group despite a superb season for Saracens, that saw him named in the Premiership Team of the Year, is currently on tour with the England Saxons in the USA, where they are competing for the Churchill Cup.

We don’t have any details yet about who Barritt is replacing in he squad, but we’d like to wish him nothing but the very best and hope this is the start of a long and successful international career. Go kill some Aussies, Dub!

  • Matt Banahan’s England tour is over after he was found guilty of a dangerous tackle in Tuesday’s 15-9 victory over the Australian Barbarians.

    The England win was cited for a “lifting tackle” on Australian centre Berrick Barnes and he attended a disciplinary hearing in Sydney on Wednesday.

    Banahan has been suspended until June 30, ruling him out of Saturday’s second Test against the Wallabies and next Wednesday’s clash with New Zealand Maori in Napier.

    Banahan was unlikely to have been involved in Saturday’s Test but he has started both of England’s midweek games on tour and would have been in contention to face the Maori.

    England have the right to appeal the suspension imposed by the New Zealand judicial officer Peter Hobbs but no decision on that has yet been made public.

    Martin Johnson will announce the England team to play the second Test tomorrow.

    Mike Tindall missed training yesterday with a dead leg but Johnson is confident the Gloucester centre will be fit.

    MAYBE he is being called as cover for Tindall

    He is more than likely a prop. Huia Edmonds is the hooker sub.

    If you are thinking about the Reds hooker with the dreadlocks. That is Saia Faingaa, he is the starting hooker.

  • Barritt is missed at the Sharks but in all fairness there are a lot of centres ahead of him in the Boks pecking order. I still don’t like seeing him pulling on the jersey of the enemy though.
