D-Day looms on Morgan's fitness race
BEN Morgan only has one more chance to prove his Six Nations fitness – on Tuesday afternoon.
Gloucester's number eight is winning the battle against his ankle injury but is running out of time to take any further part in England's Grand Slam tilt.
Morgan ran for the first time on Thursday afternoon but is yet to take part in any contact work.
England boss Stuart Lancaster said 23-year-old Morgan must take full part in Tuesday's session to be in contention for next weekend's Six Nations closing fixture against Wales in Cardiff.

Morgan limped out of England's 38-18 Six Nations victory over Scotland and has not played since.
Gloucester boss Nigel Davies thought he would be doubtful for the rest of the tournament, and that expectation has rung true.
England head coach Lancaster explained: "Ben will have to train fully on Tuesday as a minimum to force his way in.
"He ran on Thursday but has not done any contact work yet.
"He is improving all the time so we'll just to wait and see, but as things stand he's in contention for the Wales match with that session next week still to come."
