England retain Randall and Jeffries for Barbarians week

Harry Randall and Sam Jeffries have been named in the England men’s squad for next weekend’s match against Barbarians.

The 36-player squad will meet today [Sunday 12 June] at the Honda England Rugby Performance Centre at Pennyhill Park, Bagshot to prepare for Sunday’s game at Twickenham Stadium (3pm BST KO).

Players from Leicester Tigers and Saracens, who are involved in the Gallagher Premiership Final on Saturday 18 June, are not available for selection.

Danny Care returns for the first time since November 2018.  Will Collier also returns to the squad and there is a first call-up for Jack Walker.

Luke Cowan-Dickie (knee injury) will be in camp continuing rehab work.

The Barbarians’ match also forms a key part of Eddie Jones’ side’s preparation for their upcoming tour of Australia. England will play three tests against the Wallabies in Perth (2 July), Brisbane (9 July) and Sydney (16 July).

Jones said: “This is a strong, diverse squad. There are a lot of exciting, young players and some experienced players who have another opportunity to shine.

“Everyone will be given the chance to make their case for being part of the Australia tour squad while we prepare for the Barbarians.

“The Barbarians game at Twickenham is always a great rugby occasion and we know the fans always have a great day out, watching a really entertaining game. 

“We’re looking forward to working hard on the training pitch this week so we’re ready for a fantastic match on Sunday.”

Tickets are available for England v Barbarians FC priced from £25 for adults and £12 for under 16s.  The match is live on Amazon Prime Sport.
