Four Gloucester players have been named in the 30-man England training squad for the next RBS Six Nations clash against Ireland next week.
Henry Paul, Phil Vickery, Andy Hazell and Andy Gomarsall will team up with Andy Robinson's squad next week after the weekend's clash at home to Bath.
There are four changes to Robinson's original squad, including a call up for 24 year-old Leicester Tigers fly half Andy Goode.
Goode took part in England training last month in Leeds and Loughborough and impressed in the England 'A' victory over France 'A' in Bath last week, where he kicked 10 of England's 30 points.
Robinson said: "Andy has been knocking on the England door recently, with his good form for Leicester and I felt he impressed last week in his A game performance. So he earns his selection to the squad for what will be a massively important game against Ireland.
"Julian White has not yet recovered from the neck injury he picked up in the Wales game but I'm sure he will return to play an important part in our games later in the championship."
