Injury and suspension may be the bane of a coach's life, but they take the pain out of team selection. The failure of the London Irish centre Jonathan Joseph to complete Monday's training session at the England base in Surrey effectively ruled him out of next Saturday's meeting with Fiji at Twickenham, thereby sparing Stuart Lancaster and his back-room staff an awkward decision in midfield. It now seems certain that Brad Barritt of Saracens and Leicester's Manu Tuilagi will be reunited in the back division.
