'Exceptional' Goode in-line for England start
England backs coach Andy Farrell has praised the form of Alex Goode ahead of their crucial Six Nations match against Ireland this Saturday.
Stuart Lancaster announced the England squad that will travel to Dublin yesterday evening, with Saracens full-back Alex Goode looking likely to start the Six Nations clash.
Goode was an influential figure in England's 12-6 victory over Ireland at the Aviva Stadium two years ago and Andy Farrell has been impressed with the way the full-back has handled the big games for Saracens this season.
“Alex, coming in, is an experienced guy himself who has been waiting for his chance. His form for Saracens in the big games against Munster and Clermont has been exceptional.
“He’s super excited. All you ask from a player waiting in the wings is for them to be ready. He certainly is,” stated Andy Farrell.
