Jones forced to tweak England squad
NEWS: Gloucester hooker Jack Singleton has withdrawn from the England squad and is self-isolating following a COVID-19 close contact notification.
Wasps’ Gabriel Oghre has been called up to the squad, who met on Monday at The Lensbury, Teddington for a five-day training camp after Eddie Jones announced a 34-man squad last week.
The 25-year-old Singleton earned the last of his three caps against the USA at the World Cup in 2019, while Oghre is uncapped. The Wasps No.2 joins 21 other uncapped players in the squad, which is subject to change after the Premiership season.
Jones’ side will begin their preparations for their July series of fixtures on Monday. They will reconvene on Sunday, ahead of the following weekend’s England A v Scotland A game at Welford Road on Sunday, June 27.
They will then play two Test matches at Twickenham Stadium against USA on Sunday, July 4 and Canada on Saturday, July 10.
