England have endured a bad news week leading into their final World Cup warm-up against Fiji this Saturday.


Captain Owen Farrell was handed a four-match ban for his high tackle against Wales and Billy Vunipola was given a three-match ban (which can be lowered to two if he attends tackle school) for his foul against Ireland.

To compound the misery, wing Anthony Watson has been ruled out of the World Cup because of a calf injury. Yet while those stories have dictated the headlines, there is another point from the England camp which should be highlighted.

Courtney Lawes will win his 100th cap this weekend and coach Steve Borthwick said of him: "It has been a privilege to watch his journey and witness him develop into a truly outstanding rugby player.

"Not only is Courtney an exceptional talent and an excellent professional, he is also a brilliant role model for young players every time he steps onto the field."
