UPDATE | Eddie Jones cuts his squad to 25 for France clash

England men’s head coach Eddie Jones has confirmed his 25-man squad for 2020 Guinness Six Nations match against France.

Ahead of the match on Sunday (KO 3pm UK time, live on BBC), Luke Cowan-Dickie, who returned to England for family reasons on Tuesday evening, will re-join the squad in Paris on Friday with Jack Singleton standing down from his earlier call-up.

In addition, Joe Launchbury, apprentice Alex Mitchell and Anthony Watson have travelled with the squad.

Watson won’t be considered for selection due to an injury (calf) he was carrying before coming into camp.
