Six Saints called up for England training camp

Six Saints – including first-time call-up David Ribbans – are part of England’s training camp as preparations begin for the upcoming autumn series.

The powerful lock, 25, joins clubmates Fraser Dingwall, Piers Francis, George Furbank, Alex Mitchell and Alex Moon in the 28-man group set to convene at The Lensbury in south west London from Tuesday 6 October to Thursday 8 October.

England have six upcoming fixtures this autumn starting with the uncapped Quilter Cup against the Barbarians on Sunday 25 October.

“Our preparation to build the team for the Italy game starts now,” Jones commented. “We have a three-day camp this week and another one next week then we’re into the week of our Quilter Cup match against the Barbarians. We’ll be slowly building up, working on the basics and working on team cohesion.

“We’re excited to be back together in camp representing England. This autumn we want to play for the fans and give them something to smile about.”
