Care is named in the 36-player squad meets today at the Honda England Rugby Performance Centre at Pennyhill Park to prepare for Sunday’s game at Twickenham Stadium, kick off 3pm.

While the Barbarians game is uncapped, the selection of Care has come as something of suprise given that head coach Eddie Jones hasn’t selected him in nearly four years. The 35-year-old, who last played in November 2018, has been in rip-roaring form for Harlequins.

Will Collier also returns to the squad and there is a first call-up for Jack Walker. There is no place for fellow Harlequins Joe Marler, who is being omitted for the Barbarians came but who could yet feature on tour in Australia.

Luke Cowan-Dickie – who is nursing a knee injury – will be in camp continuing rehab work.

The squad doesn’t include any players from Leicester Tigers and Saracens, who are involved in the Gallagher Premiership Final next Saturday.

Jones said: “This is a strong, diverse squad. There are a lot of exciting, young players and some experienced players who have another opportunity to shine.
