Five Saints named in England training squad

Eddie Jones has named a 44-man preseason training squad, with five Saints making the trip to Lensbury Hotel from Saturday 4 August until Monday 6 August.

Piers Francis, who featured in the recent tour of South Africa, is joined by fellow Saints Courtney Lawes, James Haskell, Paul Hill and captain Dylan Hartley as they squad convenes on Saturday.

England head coach Eddie Jones said: "With just over 12 months until the Rugby World Cup, it is an important time. 

"This camp is all about individual preparation, it’s about looking to see how we can help each of the players improve, how we can help with their selection for the national team, because we have 44 players coming in plus another 15 who are strongly in contention for the Quilter Internationals in November."

England’s next training camp will be Sunday 23 September until Wednesday 25 September in Bristol before joining up on 24 October to prepare for the Quilter Internationals in November.

England will play four matches in the upcoming Quilter Internationals against South Africa (3 November), New Zealand (10 November), Japan (17 November) and Australia (24 November). Kick off for all games will be 3pm live on Sky Sports HD.
