Tuilagi is three games into his comeback from the Achilles injury sustained in September and is the only senior player to be selected in the 36-strong group that will continue preparations at the Lensbury.

England missed his power in midfield during the autumn and Six Nations campaigns but the Sale centre could now feature in next months Tests, which are preceded by a second string international against Scotland ‘A’.

The squad has been strengthened by personnel from losing Gallagher Premiership semi-finalists Sale and Bristol, but there are no players from Saracens present including Billy Vunipola.

Vunipola has joined George Ford, Ben Youngs, Jonny May and Mark Wilson in being rested, while England have supplied 12 players to the British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa.

Jones said: “We had a really good training week last week. We’ve now added some new players and are looking forward to working with them.

“The players who aren’t with us now acquitted themselves really well in training and though they are disappointed to go home, we’ve made the point to them that if they keep working hard then there will be more opportunities for them.

“We will treat the week as a Test week, everyone will work hard and be ready for a competitive game on Sunday.”
