England’s least English squad in years includes eight overseas players

England have four times more overseas players in their squad for the upcoming 2022 Autumn Nations Series than they did a year ago.

Having been openly critical of Scotland and Wales for their selection policy, Eddie Jones has recalled a few legends while also bringing in a number of uncapped players born overseas.

You can see the full squad for the games against Argentina, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa next month by clicking here.
