George ready for Saxons call up says McCall
In the wake of another eye catching performance, Mark McCall believes 23-year-old hooker Jamie George should be closing in on an England Saxons call up, after the free scoring front-rower crossed for his fifth try of the season against Zebre Rugby on Saturday.
“I think that he’s knocking on the door of the Saxons squad by now” said George’s Director of Rugby Mark McCall.
“He’s that kind of quality now, and I’m sure Stuart (Lancaster) would have noticed his form”.
McCall added; “I wouldn’t say Jamie is a prospect – he’s a proper player nowadays and plays just as much as Schalk Brits does. He served his three or four year apprenticeship which was the right period of time for him and he was magnificent today. I thought he scrummed well; he threw well and was good around the park – he had a great game.
