FORMER Worthing Raiders Rugby Club player Joe Marler has been named in the England squad for the autumn international tests.

The ex-Raider, who now plies his trade at Harlequins, has been named in the 32-man squad for the Tests, which begin against Fiji on November 10.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “As a coaching team we can’t wait to go into camp and get the guys focused on what will be a massive challenge in the QBE Internationals – Fiji and then the three major Southern Hemisphere teams in successive weeks.

“We have been impressed with some of the rugby we have seen in the Aviva Premiership and Heineken Cup and are looking forward to the players bringing that form to Twickenham.”

England face Fiji, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand at Twickenham over consecutive weekends, in November.

The squad will gather for a training camp at St George’s Park, Burton, on Sunday night.
