Saracens flanker Jackson Wray says he was disappointed not to make the England squad but will carry on striving for the white jersey.
Wray says he listened to some of the rumours surrounding his England squad inclusion and was crestfallen after not making it.
"I’d heard some of the talk and kept my eye out for the announcement, but it wasn’t to be," Wray told the Rugby Paper.
"I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed. Since being very young, playing for England has been a massive goal and it’s something I’m keen to be involved in.
"The squad has been unbelievably successful post-World Cup under Eddie and all our lads coming back from camps say how much they love it. They love the intensity and the way they work so, whether it’s in the future or not, I’ll keep on striving.
"I’m trying to be ready for when it comes and if they want me to do more, I’ll do it. I’m only 25 and feel like there are more improvements to be had. I’d heard some of the talk and kept my eye out for the announcement, but it wasn’t to be."
