England Under 20 graduate Kvesic reported to the camp in Leeds this evening as injury cover for Tom Johnson after the Exeter Chiefs flanker injured his knee in the Heineken Cup defeat to Leinster on Saturday.

Botha, who both featured in last autumn’s QBE Internationals, will arrive tomorrow in place of Northampton Saints’ Calum Clark who suffered a shoulder injury. Both players will remain at their clubs for treatment.

Monye, who celebrated 200 games for Quins with a Heineken Cup try against Connacht last weekend, is also added to the training group while injuries are assessed from the weekend’s European action.
