Owen Farrell lifts the trophy as England are Autumn Nations Cup champions

Eddie Jones announced a 34-man squad for the upcoming Autumn Nations Series, as England prepare for three back-to-back internationals at Twickenham.

The squad contains a mix of fresh new talent and some of the old guard, with a number of players involved in the summer tests against Canada and the USA retained in the latest squad which sees a major shake-up.

Jamie Blamire, Callum Chick, Trevor Davison, Alex Dombrandt, Adam Radwan, Harry Randall, Marcus Smith and Freddie Steward are all included after making their debuts in the July Test matches.

Meanwhile, try-scoring machine Nic Dolly, Mark Atkinson, Tommy Freeman and Raffi Quirke are the four uncapped players in the squad.

The squad features just 12 members of the 2019 Rugby World Cup squad, which reached the final in Japan, with Jones electing for a much-changed squad ahead of this series.

Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell remains as captain for the series, as he edges closer to 100 caps for his country.

Also set for a near milestone is Saracens’ lock Maro Itoje, who could reach his half-century this November.

Jones said: “This is a young but very good, talented squad who have all earned their places. It is one of the most competitive squads I have ever picked.

“There are a number of disappointed players who haven’t been selected, but they know what they need to do and no door is closed to any player.

“We’re looking forward to three tough Test matches. Tonga always play a strong, physical game and Australia and South Africa have had extended periods together and will be a good challenge for us.

“Our aim each week will be to get better and better as we work towards the Rugby World Cup in 2023.”
