England squad announced for Autumn Nations Series 2021

Eddie Jones has named a 34-player England squad for the Autumn Nations Series 2021.

England have three tests, starting against Tonga, Australia and South Africa and it will herald a changing of the guard.

Jones has included four uncapped players. Nic Dolly and Tommy Freeman receive their first call-ups, alongside Mark Atkinson and Raffi Quirke who joined up with the squad last month for a short training camp

Eddie Jones on his England squad for Autumn Nations Series

“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.”
