Easter hungry for England recall

Date published: January 14 2015

Harlequins number eight Nick Easter has added his own voice to calls of a return to the England setup for the upcoming Six Nations Championship.

The 36-year-old, who recently inked a new two-year contract at the Stoop, is being talked up as being a replacement to the injured Ben Morgan.

Already his club boss Conor O’Shea has backed Easter for a return to the international stage and now Easter himself has spoken of his eagerness.

“My hunger to play for England is as strong as it has ever been, stronger probably,” he told the Telegraph ahead of the squad announcement.

“I believe that I am a much better player than when I was last capped. I make far better decisions for a start.

“Yes, I want to be back involved. I would love to be. It is a huge driving force for me. But all I can do is state that and then get out there and play as well as I can.”
