Three Lions miss out on England training camp

England head coach Eddie Jones has named the 33 players who will convene in Oxford on Sunday 24 September for the three-day camp.

The squad includes uncapped 18-year-old Marcus Smith and hooker Tom Dunn while the Lions trio of prop Kyle Sinckler, flanker James Haskell and centre Jonathan Joseph are not included.

The camp will provide a chance for the squad to continue their preparations for the upcoming Old Mutual Wealth Series that will see England play Argentina (November 11), Australia (November 18) and Samoa (November 25).

“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,” said Jones.

“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.”
