Alex Goode: Wants his England jersey back

Saracens full-back Alex Goode has warned Harlequins' Mike Brown that he is determined to win back his England spot.

Goode has been sidelined with a shoulder injury which gave Brown his chance to shine for England on their tour to Argentina in June.

Brown built on those performances by impressing during the recent November Tests where he was named as England's player of the series.

It's a far cry from the Six Nations when Brown was shunted to the left wing while Goode was England's first choice full-back.

Goode returned to action in September and knows he has a battle on his hands to regain the England number 15 jersey.

"Mike played really well in the autumn, credit to him," he said.

"All I can do is put some form in between now and the Six Nations and try and push him as hard as possible.

"This time last year it was the opposite way round which just shows you that things can change very quickly.

"You just have got to play well and make the most of your chances when they come your way.

"It's disappointing (missing Argentina) but injuries always happen in this game, there are plenty of people worse off than me.

"I have got a long run of games under my belt now for Saracens but Mike has got the shirt now and it's about me trying to take it off him."
