Sinckler and Randall named in England Six Nations squad

Kyle Sinckler and Harry Randall have been named in Eddie Jones' England squad for the forthcoming Six Nations campaign.

Ben Youngs could become England men’s most-capped player during the tournament.  The scrum-half, who made his debut in 2010, is two caps behind Jason Leonard (114).  In other potential milestones, Kyle Sinckler is in line to earn cap 50.

There are six new faces in the squad: Orlando Bailey, Alfie Barbeary, Ollie Chessum, Tommy Freeman, Ollie Hassell-Collins and Luke Northmore.

"Selecting this squad has been a difficult task, we’ve got plenty of good young players coming through and some of our more experienced are rediscovering their best form," said Jones.

"We think this 36 for the first training week reflects a good balance of that experience and up-and-coming talent. In Brighton we’ll focus on getting the fundamentals of our game in play right and developing the cohesion of the team.

"The Six Nations is going to be the most competitive we’ve ever seen. All the countries performed well in the autumn, so we need to be at our best and improve with every game."

Owen Farrell will captain England, while team vice captains will be announced ahead of each match. Following the Scotland game, England will travel to Rome to play Italy on Sunday 13 February.

Jones’ side will then return to England for home games at Twickenham Stadium against Wales (Saturday 26 February) and Ireland (Saturday 12 March), before finishing the campaign in Paris against France on Saturday 19 March.

All of England’s matches are on ITV, except for Scotland v England which is on BBC.  Radio commentary for all games will be on BBC Radio 5 Live.
