Eddie Jones has named a 34-player England squad as they begin preparations for their summer series of fixtures. The squad will meet up at The Lensbury next Monday for a five-day training camp. With twelve English players involved in the British and Irish Lions squad and the Gallagher Premiership semi-finalists (Bristol Bears, Exeter Chiefs, Harlequins and Sale Sharks) unavailable for selection, Jones has named 21 uncapped players.


An updated squad will reconvene on Sunday, June 20, ahead of the England A fixture against Scotland A at Mattioli Woods Welford Road (Sunday, June 27). Gallagher Premiership finalists will not be available for selection for this squad.

Following the final, Jones will further update his squad for England’s two Test matches at Twickenham Stadium in July. They will first host USA (Sunday, July 4) before taking on Canada in their final fixture on Saturday, July 10. Seven clubs make up the list of 21 uncapped players, with Newcastle leading the way with five players and Leicester contributing four. Tigers prop Ellis Genge is the most capped player included in the squad as the likes of George Ford and Jonny May have been rested.

Jones said: “This is the first squad of three and we will include players from the other clubs where appropriate when they become available. We have also given some of our senior players the chance to get some important rest and recovery time after back-to-back seasons and with no proper pre-season.

“For this group, it’s a chance to come into the England environment and really show what they can do. We expect them to be enthusiastic, full of energy and we want them to know there is no limit to their horizon. There is a lot of talent in this squad but the challenge for them is to turn talent into performance. We are really looking forward to working with this group of young players and see where we can take them.  They have the opportunity to take on the world.”
