Eddie Jones has confirmed that 25 England players are to be retained for the upcoming test against Fiji this weekend.

Wasps’ Nathan Hughes, who made his debut against the Springboks last weekend and who caused controversy this week when he admitted that he chose England over this weekend’s opponents for the money, retains his place

Kyle Sinckler and Ben Te’o also keep their spots in the panel. Teimana Harrison comes back into the international set-up, having been cut from the squad to face South Africa last week, as an apparent replacement for Tom Wood.

Billy Vunipola has also recovered sufficiently despite earlier concerns regarding an earlier niggle, while Charlie Ewels has also been recalled for the clash at Twickenham.
