ENGLAND RUGBY Eddie Jones Six Nations 2022 squad

england rugby wideEddie Jones has named a 36-player England squad to begin preparations for the Six Nations.
 
The squad will meet in Brighton from next Monday for a five-day training camp. 
 
They will then regroup at Pennyhill Park, Bagshot ahead of their first game, against Scotland, at Murrayfield on Saturday February 5.
 
Bristol's Kyle Sinckler is in line to make his 50th cap during the five-week long tournament.
 
There are six uncapped players included in the squad – Bath's Orlando Bailey, Alfie Barbeary, Ollie Chessum, Tommy Freeman, Ollie Hassell-Collins and Luke Northmore.
 
Following the Scotland game, England will travel to Rome to play Italy on Sunday February 13.
 
Jones’ side will then return to England for home games at Twickenham Stadium against Wales (Saturday February 26) and Ireland (Saturday March 12), before finishing the campaign in Paris against France on Saturday March 19.
 
Jones said: “Selecting this squad has been a difficult task, we’ve got plenty of good young players coming through and some of our more experienced are rediscovering their best form.
 
“We think this 36 for the first training week reflects a good balance of that experience and up-and-coming talent.
 
“In Brighton we’ll focus on getting the fundamentals of our game in play right and developing the cohesion of the team.
 
“The Six Nations is going to be the most competitive we’ve ever seen.  All the countries performed well in the autumn, so we need to be at our best and improve with every game.”
 
All of England’s matches are on ITV, except for Scotland v England which is on BBC.  Radio commentary for all games will be on BBC Radio 5 Live.
