Stevens ban runs out on 18 January, 2011 -- Rugby World Cup year -- and he will face an uphill battle to win a place in the England squad that travels to New Zealand later that year. But playing for a high profile club like Wasps would boost his chances. The Bath prop is 27 and should be reaching his prime as a forward in two years time, but will have been unable to play any form of rugby during his ban. Retired England World Cup-winner Dallaglio, speaking at the Prince Obolenksy lecture in London, said: We will be happy to offer Matt a job when he completes his ban and Wasps has a reputation for taking in waifs and strays. We are an inclusive club and the game has a moral obligation to look after Matt who was banned for using a recreational drug not a performance enhancing one. Matt was hung out to dry when this all broke and Bath should have looked after him. BY HARRY LANE LITESPORT YESTERDAY James Haskell was so miffedbytheweatherinnot-so-sunny Surrey, he called for a radical move to summer rugby. Today, hell be officially told hes back in the England starting line-up for Saturdays clash with Argentina at Twickenham, where the Windsor- born 6ft 4in loose forward will revel in the mud of a British autumn. Through the mists of a winters morning at Englands Bagshot base yesterday, jameshaskell grumbled on www.twitter-com: Raining and mis- erable at Pennyhill Park, but mood is good.Forwardsandteamsessionthis morning. I vote we make rugby a summer sport, we would only have to compete with cricket. Bigger crowds, better games and more hospitality. Within hours twitters were flying and Haskell accepted: Okay, taking someheatformysummerchat.Didnt thinkaboutthehardgrounds.Butwe liveinEnglandandthehardestitgets is medium soft. And, as news of his selection for Saturday began to permeate the Englandcamp,thatwassoonfollowed by: Keep it winter. Too many good arguments.Hardpitchesarethemain reason. And just to make things perfect for the No8 who moved from Wasps to Stade Fran- c a i s l a s t summer,his old Welling- ton College p a l P a u l Doran-Jones (right) is in t h e s q u a d too. Best not to mention the pair of them were suspended over a video camera incident at one of Brit- ains poshest public schools in 2003. England boss Martin Johnson had little choice in calling up Gloucesters Doran-Jones. With David Wilson and David Barnes forced out by injury, there are no other front-row options. Bath veteran Duncan Bell and Tim Payne of Wasps will start at tight- headandloose-headwiththeversatile Doran-Jones as cover on both sides. Northamptons Dylan Hartley will start between them at hooker, with World Cup-winner Steve Thompson reverting to the bench. GrahamRowntree,Englandsscrum coach, said: I like what I see in Paul. Ive been watching him all season, I think hes a true prospect for the future. Hesgoodatalotof things and I give him my full backing. Hes good enough and thats what well tell him.
