Lancaster weighs up options

Competitive training sessions will help interim boss pick starting XV

Stuart Lancaster admits Ben Morgan is "finding his feet quickly" with England, leaving the interim head coach with a real selection dilemma for Saturday. Flanker Morgan came off the bench to make his Test debut in the Calcutta Cup clash at Murrayfield, taking over from Phil Dowson at the back of the pack.The 22-year-old certainly impressed during his cameo appearance, leading to suggestions that the Scarlet could be pushing for a starting berth for the trip to Rome to take on Italy. Lancaster has praised Morgan for how quickly he has adapted to the international game as he considers his options for the weekend. "Part of the selection discussion over the two weeks has been about the back row," he said. "I was pleased with its balance on Saturday and I thought Tom Croft, Chris Robshaw and Phil all contributed in different areas. "We were pleased with Ben Morgan's impact from the bench. He has taken a huge step to go from no representative rugby straight into the England side. "For him to come here and be involved as he has been, he is clearly finding his feet quickly. "We are pleased with the impact he made but we also bear in mind the steps he has taken. "It is part of the selection dynamic for this weekend." - http://www1.skysports.com/
