Experienced Leicester Tigers prop Dan Cole is expected not to make Eddie Jones’ England squad, according to the Mail Online.
The England head coach is expected to bring in new players for the Six Nations, however, in-form Ben Curry and Alex Dombrandt will likely miss out on the squad.
Instead, Northampton’s back-three rookie George Furbank is one of the uncapped players set to be included in the squad, while his in-form club-mate Teimana Harrison is believed to be on course for a recall.
Having come out of Test retirement last summer, prop Joe Marler is also set to play on.
Jones will name his squad at midday today.
