No official game but they are having two private training sessions with Georgia today and tomorrow which is due to conclude with an open training session at Twickers on Friday morning.

Great shame Hepburn as a prob is not staying for scrum training against Georgia, if he had given him more than 5 mins per he may have seen his worth

Confirmed by the Beeb

By Chris Jones - BBC Radio 5 live rugby reporter
Number eight Sam Simmonds is out of England's next two Six Nations matches after picking up a shoulder injury in the victory over Wales.

Head coach Eddie Jones has confirmed the Exeter forward will miss the games away to Scotland and France, but should "hopefully" be fit to face Ireland.

England vs Ireland is 17th March so that means he is on the shelf for the next month.

LCD can be seen briefly jogging behind Dylan Hartley at 1 minute and 4 seconds into the vid.

Can't be sure but seconds earlier someone can be seen who looks like Hepburn who is holding a clipboard?
