Eddie Jones Names Eight Uncapped Players In His 26 Man Training Squad

Eddie Jones has unveiled a 26 man training squad ahead of Wales clash.

Eddie Jones has named a 26 main training squad ahead of England’s clash with Wales on May 29. The squad will gather in Brighton for a three day training camp beginning on May 16.

Although the squad will not include players from Saracens, Exeter Chiefs, Wasps and Leicester Tigers, who will be contesting the Premiership’s end of season play-offs, it gives those on the fringes a chance to impress before England’s summer tour of Australia.

As a result, the eight uncapped players will be hoping to make their mark, and at least be in contention for a place on the touring party.

As was reported this morning, Northampton’s kiwi born backrow, Teimana Harrison has been included alongside fellow uncapped players, Charlie Ewels, Kyle Sinckler, Tommy Taylor, Ollie Devoto, Mike Haley, Alex Lewington and Micky Young.

After impressing with Gloucester this season, Matt Kvesic has also been selected among the training squad, which also sees Luther Burrell recalled.
