Head coach Eddie Jones has drafted in four Harlequins players as he named his ‘final’ 38-man squad ahead of England’s two summer Test matches.

With many of England’s senior players either on British & Irish Lions duty in South Africa or rested, a highly experimental England side is likely to take on USA on Sunday 4 July and Canada on Saturday 10 July; both at Twickenham HQ.

Jones lost out on the opportunity of further experimentation when the England A versus Scotland A fixture was scrubbed at the weekend after an outbreak in the Scotland training camp.

Fresh from the Gallagher Premiership final victory over Exeter, Harlequins’ Joe Marchant and uncapped trio Alex Dombrandt, Jack Kenningham and Marcus Smith join the squad. Exeter Chiefs’ centre Henry Slade has also been called up, while Wasps’ hooker Gabriel Oghre has returned to the squad after being involved in the first training week.

“This is the third and final phase of our selection,” said Jones. “We have a squad here full of talent and potential, with 23 uncapped players who have the chance to make their England debut.

“We’ve had two good weeks working and training hard and now we look forward to seeing how far we can go.”

The squad includes 23 uncapped players, with London Irish’s Chunya Munga is in camp as an apprentice player. Ollie Sleightholme was unavailable for selection after suffering concussion in training.
