Jonny May says England room-mate Ruaridh McConnochie is prepared for his Test debut.
Hip and hamstring injuries saw McConnochie withdrawn from the starting XV on the eve of the home and away World Cup warm-up Tests against Wales last month, but the Bath wing is poised to feature against Italy at Newcastle live on Sky Sports.
Eddie Jones will announce his staff for the final match of the build-up to Japan 2019 and is also expected to mention Anthony Watson at full-back.
Occupying the opposite wing to sevens specialist McConnochie, who won a silver medal is going to be the player whom he’s been rooming in camp.
May said:”It’s been tough for Ruaridh. Before we played Wales, he was upset on the Fridays. Apart from that he’s only got on with it.
“The people around that you possess an effect on you for him to not mope about is a credit to him.
“That’s probably one reason Eddie enjoys him. He is still adding to the team, even if he’s not playing.
“I am very excited for him to get out on the pitch. It must have been hard for him but he is ready. He will do what he can once he gets out on the pitch.
“He’s healthy and he is powerful. That’s a item or maybe. He breaks tackles because he is used to those one-on-ones although we have not done much contact things here.
“I’ve told him to’look after your self, be clever, don’t push it’. I’ll help him if we needs a conversation the best that I can. He is here for a reason.
“He’s had a brilliant season with Toilet, got expertise at an Olympic Games and he is a really amazing man. He is going to do well.”
