Eddie Jones names England squad to face Barbarians at Twickenham

England will take on the Barbarians at Twickenham Stadium on Sunday 26 October (2pm KO).  It will be the first game for Jones’ side since March.

The match is live on Sky Sports Arena with coverage starting from 1pm.

Jones said: “This is important game for us and we’re looking forward to getting back to Twickenham and playing rugby.

“We’ve had two really good camps, going back to basics and how we want to play.  The Barbarians squad has a rich blend of talent, so this week we’ll be testing ourselves under pressure and looking to take our game to the next level.”

Joe Marler (Harlequins) will also join up with the squad for reconditioning.
