Sackey out of France match

Sackey out of France match

England winger Paul Sackey has been ruled out of Sunday's Six Nations match against France.
England announced on Tuesday that Sackey had not recovered from an ankle injury and is one of 13 squad members released to their clubs. Sackey was injured in England's 14-13 loss to Ireland at Croke Park Feb. 28 and David Strettle has been recalled to the squad for the game against the French at Twickenham.
Meanwhile Shane Geraghty has been ruled out of the rest of the Six Nations after breaking his hand on Sunday playing for London Irish during their 21-16 defeat to Wasps.
England said that fly half Toby Flood resumed training Monday and it has Andy Goode as another option. Ollie Barkley initially returned to the squad as one of the backups but was then sent home.
David Wilson will also provide cover at tight-head prop while Louis Deacon replaces the injured lock Tom Palmer.
Manager Martin Johnson will name his side for the France match Wednesday.
