Eddie Jones has confirmed his squad ahead of England’s two-Test series against Argentina next month. The squad has assembled today at the Lensbury Hotel in Teddington before leaving for Buenos Aires on Saturday 3 June.

Denny Solomona (Sale Sharks) will be assessed today after suffering a mid-foot sprain in England’s recent camp in Brighton. Marland Yarde (Harlequins) has been called up as injury cover with a decision to be made later.

Piers Francis (Auckland Blues/ Northampton Saints) will fly from New Zealand to join the group in the Argentinian capital next weekend.

England Head Coach Eddie Jones said: “I’m really excited about this Test series in Argentina. It is a big opportunity for this group and we are going out there to win 2-0.

“The players who have been in camp over the last few weeks have done extremely well and the win against a Barbarians team full of top internationals yesterday is testament to the hard work they have put in.”

“We are looking forward to a good week of preparation in London before we depart this weekend.”
