    Premiership clubs have agreed to release their England players for the remaining two autumn Tests.

    The agreement between Premier Rugby and the Rugby
    Football Union relaxes a previous accord preventing any player starting
    more than three matches.

    England face South Africa on Saturday in the first of two Tests.

    "It's important that we all get fully behind our England
    players and help in getting England back to winning," said Premier
    Rugby chief Mark McCafferty.

    "The situation for England has clearly changed and we want to respond quickly and supportively to those needs."
    </font>


    Rugby Football Union chief executive Francis Baron said:
    "I'm delighted that Premier Rugby has made this offer and it's one we
    have accepted."
    </font>


    "It shows the benefits of working together in partnership as both parties want a successful club game and England team."
    </font>


    England have lost their last seven matches and defeat on Saturday would set a new record.
    </font>


    England's elite director of rugby Rob Andrew added:
    "This is a very positive gesture and one I know that is appreciated by
    the head coach Andy Robinson and his coaching team.

    "It will help the selection panel decide the Test team
    for the second match against South Africa on 25 November and broaden
    the options from which they can select the side."
    </font>


    A High Court ruling last July stipluated that the
    Premiership clubs had to release their players for the 5 November Test
    against New Zealand - meaning England arranged four Tests in November.
    </font>
    However, a provision was included which restricted the
    number of release periods for each player to three November
    internationals and five matches in the RBS Six Nations.<!- E BO ->

    Translationticket, jersey sales etc., are down and as the clubs get a slice of that they have had to face reality. Won't make any difference though go on the BOKS!

      The conspiracy theorists say different; that this is a poisoned chalice and a way to hasten Robbo's departure.
