England release Wade but Launchbury stays
WASPS will have Christian Wade available to face Leicester Tigers on Sunday.
He was one of ten EPS players released by England boss Stuart Lancaster to play in the Aviva Premiership this weekend.
However, Joe Launchbury has remained with England.
Lancaster said: "It has been good to get into camp and spend some time with the players. I have met all of them individually and today they had forwards’ and backs’ meetings and a positive training session at West Park Leeds.
“Under the terms of the Elite Player Squad agreement we are releasing ten players back, some of whom will play in the Aviva Premiership this weekend.
"There are still places to play for and we won’t finalise the side to play Australia until much closer to the game, not least because of the matches this coming weekend, so it’s a chance for those going back to stake a final claim for inclusion in the 23.”
