England Rugby Union – Manu Tuilagi and Ben Youngs have come back to England’s first training squad

Manu Tuilagi and Ben Youngs have come back to Eddie Jones’ first England training squad of the autumn. 

They are now a part of a 36-man outfit who will start preparations during a three-day training camp this weekend for their four home Autumn Nations series fixtures in November.

Previously, Tuilagi faced a knee injury, and Jones was selected not to tour Australia for personal reasons, but both will be in this training squad.

At this stage of the season, Eddie Jones is without several senior players, such as Maro Itoje, George Ford, Courtney Lawes, Anthony Watson, and Sam Underhill are unavailable because of injuries. Danny Care is also among those omitted.

Alex Mitchell and Jack van join the 36-man squad as scrum-halves, but Harry Randall is absent from the squad.

Centre Joe is also not in the squad, and Kyle Sinckler and Joe Marler are not in the squad, but these two were available for selection.

The 36-men training squad also includes Northampton Saints’ Alex Coles and Saracens’ Hugh Tizard, but the finalized squad for the Autumn Nations series will be announced in mid-October.
