Genge Earns Call-Up To Senior England Squad

Ellis Genge has been included in England's senior 26-man squad for Old Mutual Wealth Cup against Wales and the summer tour of Australia.

The prop - who is currently on loan at Leicester Tigers - could make his senior international debut after being named in Eddie Jones' squad.

The 26-man squad to play Wales for the Old Mutual Wealth Cup at Twickenham on Sunday 29 May meets at Pennyhill Park today.

“We have selected two squads of players who can win all four games,” said England head coach Jones. “It’s important we get off to a good start against Wales and play positive rugby and win.

“We are excited to being touring Australia in June. To beat the Wallabies in Australia you have to play a physical, aggressive brand of rugby and that’s what we intend to do. We will need to be a fit, cohesive, tactically flexible team and play with a high intensity. We have to be in their faces from the first minute of the first Test.”

Congratulations to Ellis on this fine achievement from everybody at Bristol Rugby Club.
