England head coach Eddie Jones put his England squad through their paces in Brighton this morning as the men in white begin preparations for their summer tour of South Africa.
Harlequins’ Marcus Smith was back on familiar ground at Brighton College, with the 19-year-old fly-half having played for the school.
His club team-mate Mike Brown was also taking training seriously, as he looks to persuade Jones to hand him his 70th cap.
the tour will begin on Saturday June 9, when they face the Spriongboks in Johannesburg.
