England squad confirmed for Australia tour

  • England Head Coach Eddie Jones has named four uncapped players in his squad for the three-Test tour to Australia
  • Northampton Saints’ back-row forward Teimana Harrison is included in the 32-man squad, as well as 21-year-old Leicester Tigers tight-head prop Ellis Genge

“We are excited to being touring Australia in June,” said Jones.

“To beat the Wallabies in Australia you have to play a physical, aggressive brand of rugby and that’s what we intend to do.

“We will need to be a fit, cohesive, tactically flexible team and play with a high intensity. We have to be in their faces from the first minute of the first Test.

“But we are in no doubt of the challenge we face. England have only ever won three Tests in Australia and never won in Brisbane, so it is a great opportunity for us to create new history.”
