England have released a squad update ahead of their opening November international with Argentina next Saturday.

The Red Rose will take on the Pumas, but are handicapped with a host of injuries. However, Eddie Jones has received some positive news with the announcement that Elliot Daly is linking up with the squad.

The Lions back is a major addition to the side, and this comes as a significant boost as they look to get their season off to the best possible start.

Meanwhile, England’s forward pack will train against Wales in Bristol on Monday morning before travelling back to Pennyhill Park in the afternoon to continue their preparation with the rest of the squad.
