England to name Rugby World Cup squad today

England head coach Eddie Jones will today name his 31-man squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan – despite the deadline being nearly a month away.

The squad is set to be named at midday and will be available on RUCK immediately following the official announcement.

“We will name a very strong squad of 31 on Monday,” revealed Jones.

“We want the players to focus on being the tightest and most cohesive England squad ever to have played in a World Cup and we have the opportunity to do that.”

“We’ve had a squad of around 36-38 and there’s been a great competitive spirit. Everyone wants to play for England, they know they have a good chance to win the World Cup – today was just a selection day.

“We know where the injuries are and we know who is going to be available and who is not,” he explained.
