Lancaster waits for Farrell form
England's head coach, Stuart Lancaster, has admitted "the club-country dynamic" is "a challenge" as he called for Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell to play his way into form before the autumn internationals. Farrell, 21, missed the first game of the season injured and sat on the bench away to Sale. Today's visit to champions Harlequins will be his third start after missing four kicks against Leicester two weekends ago and sharing in the defeat at Exeter last Sunday.
"Owen just wants to get playing," said Lancaster. "When you've had a break your best way to find your form is to play. I'm sure he'll take his opportunities when they come."
Leicester's Toby Flood is favourite to start at fly-half against Fiji at Twickenham in November.
