Head coach Eddie Jones is set to pick two uncapped players in his England Six Nations squad for the 2021 tournament.
According to the Mail Online, Bristol Bears playmaker Harry Randall has opted to join Jones men rather than Wales, and will be part of the England Six Nations squad.
‘Wales played a big part in my childhood, so I’ll never forget that,’ said Randall.
“I had a great upbringing there. Wales will always have a place in my heart but I do class myself as English as I was born in England and have English parents.”
The 23-year-old will likely be named alongside Ben Youngs and Dan Robson, in Jones’ 28-man squad, which will be announced on Friday evening.
Meanwhile, the other uncapped player set to be in the squad is Wasps speedster Paulo Odogwu.
The 23-year-old has been in stellar form for the black and golds while flitting between the wing and centre in recent weeks, culminating in a man-of-the-match performance against Bath
