England wing Jack Nowell is "ready to go" as the race for Rugby World Cup spots moves into its home straight for the host nation of 2015's tournament.

The 22-year-old, who scored three tries in the Six Nations this past season, was one of 50 English players who arrived at Pennyhill Park in Surrey on Monday.

And the Exeter man admits he could sense an excited bunch at the camp.

"Everybody's had their time off now and their chance to recover," he told englandrugby.com

"I know a lot of the boys feel the same – they are ready to go back in once they have had a couple of weeks off.

"I think if you are lucky enough to be involved in these camps you have got to be training hard, you have got to be doing your best.

"There's no real excuse to take it easy. This is where it starts, where it begins."

Nowell said boss Stuart Lancaster would have some difficult calls to make as he looks to reduce his training squad from 50 to 31 and that his good form at the end of the Six Nations counts for little.

"You have got to draw the line under that because no-one has their position set. There are so many great players in this camp now, so it is almost starting again," he added.

"There is going to be a lot of competition in every position."
