JONES ANNOUNCES SECOND ENGLAND TRAINING SQUAD
England head coach Eddie Jones has named a 26-man training squad to convene for a three-day camp at The Lensbury.
It is the second three-day training camp for the squad ahead of the return of international rugby this autumn and will run from Thursday 15 until Saturday 17 October.
In addition, seven players will be in camp for reconditioning.
“We had a good three day camp last week working on the basics and developing our cohesion as a group,” said Jones
“This week the focus is to raise the standard as we continue our preparation for the Italy game.”
England have six upcoming fixtures this autumn starting with the uncapped Quilter Cup against the Barbarians (25 October, KO 2pm GMT, live on Sky Sports).
Following a trip to Rome to face Italy (31 Oct, KO 4.45pm GMT, live on ITV) in the final round of the delayed 2020 Guinness Six Nations, England will play four matches as part of the Autumn Nations Cup.
England will play Quilter Internationals at Twickenham Stadium against Georgia (14 November, KO 3pm) and Ireland (21 November, KO 3pm), an away match v Wales (28 November, KO 4pm) before returning to Twickenham for a placing match to determine final position in the competition (6 December, KO 2pm).
