Six Nations: Alex Goode fit for England after Saracens return
England full-back Alex Goode has declared himself fit for the Six Nations opener against Scotland on Saturday after returning to action in Saracens' 19-11 LV= Cup victory over Cardiff Blues.
Goode was making his first appearance in five weeks since sustaining a shoulder injury and played for 56 minutes on the club's new artificial pitch at Allianz Park.
"I feel really good. There was a bit of apprehension - you always go into a situation like that a bit unsure at times," said the 24-year-old.
"But I'd done all the training, I'd tested the shoulder to the max and the physios had done a great job.
"I felt 100 per cent going into the game and the shoulder came through really well. I was very happy.
"I was a bit winded after getting smashed by their winger, but I managed to carry on all right and the shoulder showed no effects after the game.
"It feels brilliant and I'm very confident going forward."
Goode is competing with Mike Brown of Harlequins and Northampton's Ben Foden for the No 15 jersey at Twickenham.
"It's up to (coach) Stuart Lancaster but I'm fit. I've got to train well this week and put myself on the radar," he said.6 Nations. Click here to bet.
