The 27-year-old lock was a key presence in the England pack during the series Down Under, but was ruled out of the third and decisive Test against the Wallabies in Sydney due to a concussion.

He is expected back in action with Saracens on 24 September when the Londoners kick off the 2022-23 Premiership season against Gloucester Tigers.
