Jasper's school mates were said to be 'delighted'

England's Rugby Union Coach Brian Ashton has named a 12 year old boy to play in Saturday's match against South Africa. As only 14 fit squad members remain due to various injuries and illness, Ashton has named the captain of St Jesus's School's U12 rugby team, Jasper Flyhalf.

Speaking earlier, Ashton told reporters: "There's no one else. All Premiership players were too scared of the mystery illness".

Flyhalf's mother said "Jasper will be delighted. I'll just go and get him off the PlayStation and we'll go"
