With one eye on the November internationals, Eddie Jones has named his squad for the next England training camp. 

The biggest changes to the complexion of the squad for this camp come in the form of uncapped 18-year-old Marcus Smith and Bath hooker Tom Dunn being included while familiar names Kyle Sinckler, James Haskell, George Kruis and Jonathan Joseph aren’t included.

Jones had previously spoken of how some Lions players may miss out in later camps having not presented themselves for the August meet-up.

The 33-man squad will meet on Sunday, September 24 for a three-day training camp, which England coach Eddie Jones explains is a fantastic opportunity for his side to refocus on international duty ahead of a busy November series.

“This camp in Oxford is a really positive opportunity for the group to come back together and sharpen our focus and preparation ahead of our first match against Argentina.

“This is our most important game this year and we want the players to come away from camp having trained well with a clear plan of how we want to play and win against the Pumas.”

England take on Argentina on November 11 at Twickenham before a further two clashes against Australia (Nov. 18th) and Samoa (Nov. 25th) respectively.

For now these are the players Jones will be working with:
