Elliot Daly left out of England’s fixture with the Barbarians as Eddie Jones picks 11 uncapped players for tune-up ahead of Six Nations finale

  • Jones is missing players from Exeter, Bristol and Wasps for Sunday’s fixture
  • That’s because of the Premiership final set for Twickenham on Saturday
  • Otherwise, most of the England Six Nations squad from March are available
  • Jones has selected a number of uncapped players for Barbarians fixture  

Lions full-back Elliot Daly has been ruled out of England’s game against the Barbarians on Sunday.

Eddie Jones has named a strong 32-man group to prepare for the fixture, which is England’s first game since March.

Players from Bristol, Exeter and Wasps are all unavailable because of the Premiership final, but Jones has otherwise kept the bulk of his squad that featured in the Six Nations.

However, there are also 11 uncapped players in contention to play, including Alex Dombrandt, Ollie Lawrence, Alex Mitchell and Ollie Thorley

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

‘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.’
