England have stayed at The Lensbury for their most recent campaigns, but it will now be used as a base for touring teams.

Wales are set to poach a member of England’s communications team to fill the void left by Luke Broadley’s departure. Due to lengthy notice periods, however, Wayne Pivac’s side will go into the autumn series with a makeshift media team.
