London - England head coach Eddie Jones admits wing Marland Yarde
could get back into the squad for the upcoming autumn series.
However, he worries that the Sale wing is not emotionally
ready to be involved.
Harlequins told Yarde he should find another club after
three missed training sessions without permission.
Many of England's wings are out injured, such as Jonny May,
Elliot Daly and Jack Nowell and aren't available for the autumn opener against
Argentina at Twickenham next Saturday.
Yarde would be competing with Anthony Watson, Denny Solomona
and Semesa Rokoduguni for a spot, but Jones doubts he is in the right frame of
mind to be involved.
“Marland is in contention but we have to assess whether
emotionally he’ll be right to compete for an England spot,” Jones told Sky
Sports. “He’s left the club that he loved to join another club, is he in the
right condition to compete for a spot?”
He added: “It’s like having a relationship break up,
sometimes it takes time for people to get over it and I’m not sure where he’s
at. I’ve spoken to him a number of times. I always knew what was going on in
“We didn’t not select him in this squad because of
behaviour, it was because Denny scored more tries than him. He came to
Argentina with us during the summer and was absolutely first class. He came to
the Oxford camp and was first class.
“That’s an issue with his club and is not something that
we’ve delved into to a great extent.”
