Ludlam named in England side for USA clash

Northampton Saints co-captain Lewis Ludlam has been named in England's matchday squad to take on USA in their first Test of the summer on Sunday (kick-off 2pm). 

Heading to Twickenham after their England A clash with Scotland was cancelled last weekend, Eddie Jones' side take to the field for the first time this summer – with Ludlam set to earn his ninth international cap should he enter the game from the bench on Sunday. 

Jones said: “Over the past three weeks our biggest message to the players is what an opportunity this is to show what they can do and make their mark with England.

“They’ve applied themselves as a group and worked very hard individually during this camp to reach their personal bests.

“Now it’s all about coming together as a team, gelling and putting in a good performance at the weekend.”

England v USA is live on Channel 4, with coverage starting from 1.30pm.
