“Nine players dropped” – How England’s Autumn squad will likely look

Eddie Jones will name a 36-player squad for England’s Autumn Nations Series in November.

We take a look at who will likely come into contention, and who, as a result will drop out of the squad after failing to impress in Australia.

Autumn Nations Series:

  • 6 November – England vs Argentina, 2.15pm (Twickenham)
  • 12 November – England vs Japan, 3.15pm (Twickenham)
  • 19 November – England vs New Zealand, 5.30pm (Twickenham)
  • 26 November – England vs South Africa, 5.30pm (Twickenham)
