Knee trouble delays Gloucester prop Knight's Saxons debut
SHAUN Knight will have to bide his time for his England Saxons debut.
A sore knee has ruled him out of tonight’s clash with Irish Wolfhounds in Galway (kick-off 7.35pm).
Leicester’s front-rower Kieran Brookes steps onto the bench in place of Knight, with Gloucester’s Nick Wood still starting at loosehead prop.
Matson-born 22-year-old tighthead Knight has progressed at a rate of knots in the last two years at Gloucester, and is now battling Rupert Harden for the number three shirt.
