England will be without a number of key players such as Manu Tuilagi, Alex Corbisiero and Tom Croft forcing Lancaster to name a second squad for next month's tournament

George Ford will be the talk of the town if, as widely assumed, he replaces the France-bound Toby Flood in a revamped England squad this afternoon, but the 20-year-old Bath outside-half's promotion has not been at the top of the red-rose hierarchy's agenda in recent days. Stuart Lancaster and his lieutenants are far more concerned with issues up front, where injuries to important players are making life very complicated indeed.

London Irish 19 Gloucester 22 match report: Billy Twelvetrees shows international class to stand tall amid festive pantomime farce
Sunday 29 December 2013
Every comedy act needs a straight man, so Sunday's prime-time Christmas special in Reading – a side-splitting sporting farce that might have been scripted by the Marx Brothers and frequently looked as though it was being performed by them as well – was the perfect showcase for Billy Twelvetrees, the England midfielder who may just be the chap to unlock the national team’s attacking game in the forthcoming Six Nations Championship. With everyone else on the field pratfalling their way through a pantomime of a contest, Twelvetrees somehow managed to rise above it all with a cool-headed contribution of considerable class.

This is getting silly. England's chances of piecing together something resembling a first-choice back division for the Six Nations opener against France in Paris at the beginning of February took another heavy blow when the Wasps wing Christian Wade was ruled off-limits for six months. The most elusive attacking runner in the country will miss the forthcoming tournament in its entirety and must be rated extremely doubtful for the three-Test tour of New Zealand in June.
