first_img It’s a standard split of 17 forwards and 14 backs and the selected players come from a spread of Aviva Premiership clubs. Saracens and Bath have made the largest contributions; just under half of the final squad.ForwardsLancaster named three hookers: Jamie George, Rob Webber and Tom Youngs. Banned Dylan Hartley has not been included, but Lancaster refused to rule out a return to the squad in the event of injury.As expected, Dan Cole will be the lynchpin of the front row, one of seven players in the team with World Cup experience. He is joined by David Wilson, Joe Marler and Mako Vunipola. Northampton Saint Kieran Brookes is the least experienced prop in the squad, but has shown promise in the 2014 autumn Internationals and 2015 Six Nations.Courtney Lawes, Geoff Parling, Joe Launchbury and George Kruis were named in the second row.As expected: England Captain Chris Robshaw and James Haskell make it The final 31-man England squad revealed on 27 August is a young one. With an average age of 26, only three of the squad have over 50 England caps. Seven of the selected men have accrued ten or less caps for their country. By Taylor Heyman LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Captain Chris Robshaw and James Haskell were no surprises in the back row. Billy Vunipola and Tom Wood secured their places with good performances in the run-up.Ben Morgan edged out Nick Easter, securing his place with a solid return to form following his broken leg earlier in the season. Dave Attwood and Calum Clarke also missed out.BacksScrum-half choices were as expected; Danny Care, Ben Youngs and Richard Wigglesworth offer Lancaster good options.England scrum-halves: Danny Care, Ben Youngs and Richard WigglesworthOwen Farrell and George Ford were selected as expected at fly-half, with Henry Slade offering another option. His ability to play well at both ten and 12 have given him the edge in selection.Joining Slade in the centres are Brad Barritt, Jonathan Joseph and Sam Burgess.Without doubt the biggest upset in the selection was Luther Burrell being dropped in favour of Sam Burgess, the ex-league player with one international cap.

He drove around at night and saw these self-styled men of God committing abuses and trafficking in drugs. In May 2012, MNLA members gave him a severe beating and “advised” him to refer to Azawad (“liberated” northern Mali) in more positive terms. After residents helped to free him, he continued to provide news coverage for the city he loves so much “Gao is home for me (…) everyone there is my family.” He was attacked again in August 2012, this time by MUJAO members, after reporting on the air that a protest had prevented the amputation of a youth’s hand for theft. He was beaten with rifle butts for two hours and left unconscious outside Gao’s hospital. After that, he finally fled to the safety of Bamako. But the Islamists did not weaken his resolve and he continues to work as a journalist in the capital.
