Exeter Chiefs legend blasts Eddie Jones on Twitter

Thomas Waldrom has criticised England head coach Eddie Jones after just three Chiefs players were named in the England squad for a three-day training camp in Bristol.

Despite reaching the last three Premiership finals, establishing themselves as one of the top clubs in the country and sitting pretty at the tip of this season’s premiership table with a perfect 15 points from three games.

Jones clearly does not think the English contingent at Sandy Park are good enough for his international side with only Henry Slade, Jack Nowell and Harry Williams got a call.

Meanwhile, the likes of Sam Simmonds, Don Armnad, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Dave Ewers, Jonny Hill, Matt Kvesic and many others will stay on club duty.

Full squad: Forwards: T Curry (Sale), J George (Saracens), D Hartley (Northampton), N Hughes (Wasps), N Isiekwe (Saracens), M Itoje (Saracens), G Kruis (Saracens), J Launchbury (Wasps), C Lawes (Northampton), J Marler (Harlequins), Z Mercer (Bath), M Rhodes (Saracens), C Robshaw (Harlequins), N Schonert (Worcester), B Shields (Wasps), K Sinckler (Harlequins), B Vunipola (Saracens), M Vunipola (Saracens), H Williams (Exeter), M Wilson (Newcastle).

Backs: C Ashton (Sale), M Brown (Harlequins), D Care (Harlequins), J Cokanasiga (Bath), E Daly (Wasps), N Earle (Harlequins), O Farrell (Saracens), G Ford (Leicester), A Lozowski (Saracens), J May (Leicester), J Nowell (Exeter), D Robson (Wasps), H Slade (Exeter), B Te’o (Worcester), M Tuilagi (Leicester), B Youngs (Leicester).
