Eddie Jones has named the same 36-man squad to prepare for South Africa this Saturday to the one that trained last week ahead of the All Blacks match.

Following England’s 25-25 draw with the All Blacks at Twickenham, Jones has winger Joe Cokanasiga available after he missed the match with an ankle injury. He was curiously involved in Bath’s match with the Barbarians at the Rec on Sunday though.

This means Newcastle Falcons winger Adam Radwan is in the squad again after being called up for the first time this autumn last week. His stay did not last long though as he was released back to the Falcons soon after.

Manu Tuilagi is in line to win his 50th England cap against the world champions, should he be selected.

The squad will be whittled down to 25 players later in the week before Jones names his matchday squad on Thursday.
