Head Coach Richard Hill has spoken about a playing return for Mullan next month alongside Chris Pennell.
But ahead of that date his importance to the England set-up has been reinforced as he was named in a 32-man England Saxons squad. A temporary replacement for the Worcester prop, while he is injured, will be named later this month.
England Saxons face Italy A at the home of Worcester Warriors on Saturday, January 29 (3.15pm) in what is sure to be the biggest game ever staged at Sixways.
