Nowell, who has 23 England caps, sustained multiple fractures around his cheek and eye socket while playing for the Chiefs last month and missed the November internationals.

“He’s trained fully this week and he’s done contact training,” Baxter told British media. “It’s not been a quick-healing injury but he’s now absolutely fine.”
