England have added to their training squad ahead of their New Zeland tour, and the match against Barbarians on June 1st.
Among the list are both Ross Harrison and James Gaskell, who have put in excellent performances for the Sharks all season, meaning Sharks now have six players in the training squad.
England Coach, Stuart Lancaster said, "James Gaskell and Ross Harrison are rewarded for their development this season and will be joining up in due course in order to prepare for the Barbarians game."
Joining Ross and Jamma are; Anthony Allen (Leicester Tigers), Mike Brown (Harlequins), Rob Buchanan (Harlequins), Danny Care (Harlequins), Will Collier (Harlequins), Jamie Gibson (Leicester Tigers), Joe Gray (Harlequins), Graham Kitchener (Leicester Tigers), Joe Marler (Harlequins), Charlie Matthews (Harlequins), Geoff Parling (Leicester Tigers), Chris Robshaw (Harlequins), Ed Slater (Leicester Tigers), Kyle Sinckler (Harlequins), Manusamoa Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers), Luke Wallace (Harlequins), Dave Ward (Harlequins), Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers).
The new additions boast 10 uncapped players, who will be looking to make an impression on Stuart Lancaster ahead of a busy 18 months for England.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Sale boss Steve Diamond believes that some good old-fashioned home comforts can help drive the Sharks to a second successive top-six Premiership finish this season.
