England’s Six Nations plans have suffered a setback after it emerged Eddie Jones will be limited to picking a smaller 28-man squad for the entire championship .
This is part of a new agreement between the Rugby Football Union and the Premiership clubs, designed to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.
With the Aussie only selecting a smaller squad, it’s very unlikely that his selection will be much different to the Autumn Nations Cup.
Here’s who we believe will make his initialy squad for the Championship.
PREDICTED ENGLAND SIX NATIONS SQUAD:
PROPS (4): Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers), Mako Vunipola (Saracens), Harry Williams (Exeter Chiefs), Will Stuart (Bath RFC)
HOOKERS (2): Jamie George (Saracens), Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs), Tom Dunn (Bath RFC)
