Uncapped flanker tipped to make England World Cup training squad

Harlequins’ uncapped forward Alex Dombrandt in line to be named in England’s first World Cup Training squad.

The uncapped flankers selection comes after a strong performance against the Barbarians earlier this month.

With all English-based players given a mandatory rest period of five weeks, those from beaten semi-finalists Gloucester and Northampton will join the camp next week.

Meanwhile, hooker Dylan Hartley, scrum-half Danny Care and flanker Chris Robshaw are understood to be among the high-profile omissions.

Jones then names his final training party, including players from finalists Exeter and Saracens, on 4 July.
