Randall called up to England training camp

Harry Randall has been named in Eddie Jones’ 36-player England men’s squad that will meet on Sunday for a three-day training camp.

The squad will train in London as they begin preparations for next month’s home game against Barbarians and ahead of their tour to Australia in July.

Joe Cokanasiga, Owen Farrell, Manu Tuilagi, Anthony Watson and Jack Willis return to the squad following injury. Elsewhere there are first-time involvements for London Irish duo Henry Arundell and Will Joseph, along with Leicester Tigers’ Jack van Poortvliet. There are 10 uncapped players and seven with more than 50 caps, including a return for Mako Vunipola.

As the Gallagher Premiership season reaches its climax, Jones has chosen to rest some players for the training camp.

"We’re going to use this camp as an opportunity to prepare a base game for the Barbarians fixture and for a really important Australia tour," he said. "We’ll focus on how we want to play, how we want to be as a team off the field and continue to develop the squad cohesiveness and behaviours.

"It is also 16 months to the World Cup and every minute counts. We want a hard-working and enjoyable environment for the players and make sure we are all on the same page. We are allowed a squad of 36 players, so it has been a balancing act.  

"We want to take a look at some younger players and prepare a base camp for the Barbarians game, particularly as we will be without the Premiership finalists, and also give some senior players a rest as we get to a crucial part of the season. These players will still be in contention for the Australia tour."

England will host Barbarians at Twickenham Stadium on Sunday 19 June (3pm KO). Tickets are available for the game from £25 for adults and £12 for under 16s. The match is live on Amazon Prime Sport.

They will then travel to Australia to face the Wallabies in Perth (Saturday 2 July, 11.05am BST KO), Brisbane (Saturday 9 July, 11.05am BST KO) and Sydney (Saturday 16 July, 11.05am BST KO). All matches will be live on Sky Sports.
