England head coach has named a 25 man training squad in preparation for Sunday week’s Six Nations tie with Ireland at Twickenham.
Jones has called Henry Slade into the squad as he continues to recover from a knee. Furthermore, Manu Tuilagi will also continue his rehabilitation with a groin injury picked up against France. Tuilagi subsequently missed the Calcutta Cup meeting with Scotland on Saturday last due to the injury he has not been named in the squad, hence Slade’s inclusion. Many players play fun poker on mobile to pass the time.
Eddie Jones has also left out Courtney Lawes but according to RTE Sport he is been rested for the three day camp. In the backs, Elliott Daly, George Ford, Owen Farrell and Jonny May are just some players selected, while in the forwards Joe Marler, Tom Curry, Sam Underhill, Maro Itoje are just some to name that will take part in the camp.
