England men’s head coach Eddie Jones has named a 32-player squad for this weekend’s Quilter Cup.

England will take on the Barbarians at Twickenham Stadium on Sunday 26 October (2pm KO). It will be the first game for Jones’ side since March.

The match is live on Sky Sports Arena with coverage starting from 1pm.

Jones said: “This is an important game for us and we’re looking forward to getting back to Twickenham and playing rugby.

“We’ve had two really good camps, going back to basics and how we want to play. The Barbarians squad has a rich blend of talent, so this week we’ll be testing ourselves under pressure and looking to take our game to the next level.”

Joe Marler (Harlequins) will also join up with the squad for reconditioning.

Following the Quilter Cup, which is an uncapped fixture, England will travel to Rome to face Italy in the final round of the delayed 2020 Guinness Six Nations on Saturday 31 October (4.45pm GMT KO). The match is live on ITV.

England will then play four matches as part of the Autumn Nations Cup, returning to Twickenham Stadium for Quilter Internationals against Georgia (Saturday 14 November, 3pm KO) and Ireland (Saturday 21 November, 3pm KO).

They will then face Wales away (Saturday 28 November, 4pm KO) before a placing match at home to determine final position in the competition (Sunday 6 December, 2pm KO). All Autumn Nations Cup games will be live on Amazon Prime.
