Eddie Jones Unveils 34 Man England Squad To Face South Africa

during the England training session held at Brown's Sport Complex on November 1, 2016 in Vilamoura, Portugal.

England will take on an out of sorts South Africa next weekend.

Despite incurring a number of injuries in recent weeks, England will be expected to beat South Africa next Saturday, after the Springboks just about managed to secure a draw with the Barbarians yesterday.

Nevertheless, all eyes will be on Eddie Jones, as this will be the first time the depth of talent at the disposal of the the England coach will be tested.

This is particularly the case in the second row, where England have lost Maro Itoje and George Kruis. Jones also faces a selection dilemma at openside, where James Haskell and Jack Clifford have both been ruled out.

England’s backline will also see some changes after both Jack Nowell and Anthony Watson suffered injuries leading up the the November series.

Jones will continue to be without Manu Tuilagi in midfield, and so we should expect to see George Ford and Owen Farrell retained at 10 and 12 respectively.
