England duo Dylan Hartley and Elliot Daly fit to face Ireland
Last Updated: 15/03/18 6:20am
Dylan Hartley and Elliot Daly have been declared fit for the Six Nations clash with Ireland at Twickenham on Saturday.
Hartley missed the 22-16 defeat by France that ceded the title to Joe Schmidt's men with a calf injury.
But defence coach Paul Gustard has revealed the Northampton hooker has played a full role in training this week.
In an additional fitness boost, British and Irish Lions wing Daly has been passed fit for the final round of the Six Nations after overcoming a foot injury suffered at the Stade de France.
The news is a welcome boost for England after No 8 Nathan Hughes and second row Courtney Lawes were ruled out for 12 and 14 weeks respectively, having had knee surgeries on injuries sustained during Saturday's defeat in Paris.
