Two players have been sent back to their clubs to recover from injury as the England squad reconvene at their training base as they prepare for the start of the Autumn Nations Cup. Eddie Jones’ side have returned to The Lensbury, Teddington, after winning the Guinness Six Nations last weekend with a 34-5 win over Italy.

A 36-player squad will begin training this week for their opening Quilter International against Georgia at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 14 November.

They will then play a second Quilter International at home against Ireland on Saturday 21 November (3pm KO). England will play their final group game in Llanelli, against hosts Wales, at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday 28 November (4pm KO). Their final Quilter International, a tournament placing game, will be played at Twickenham Stadium on Sunday 6 December (2pm KO).

Elliot Daly and Joe Marler return after injuries, while Alex Mitchell has also joined up with the squad after taking part in some of England’s training camps in October.

Jack Singleton (hamstring) and Anthony Watson (ankle) have withdrawn from the squad for the Georgia fixture through injury and will begin rehabilitation with their clubs.

George Ford and Mark Wilson will continue their rehabilitation programmes in camp at The Lensbury.

Billy Vunipola will join up with the squad on Sunday after the birth of his son earlier this week.

Newly-appointed skills coach, Jason Ryles, has joined up with the team after finishing the season and winning the NRL Grand Final with Melbourne Storm, where he was assistant coach.

All Autumn Nations Cup games will be live on Amazon Prime.
