Eight uncapped players in England's Six Nations squad


England head coach Eddie Jones has made a number of big calls in his Six Nations squad, with eight uncapped players in his group of 34 for the start of the tournament.

Notably, Jones has opted against calling up the in-form pair of Harlequins' Alex Dombrandt or Exeter's Sam Simmons, despite Billy Vunipola being unavailable with a broken arm.

21-year-old Wasps outhalf Jacob Umaga - nephew to All-Blacks legend Tana is named in a squad for the very first time, while uncapped Northampton Saints trio Fraser Dingwall, George Furbank, and Alex Moon are also included.

Exeter's Tom Dunn, Ben Earl of Saracens, Bath prop Will Stuart, and Gloucester winger Ollie Thorley also come into the squad.

A number of injuries for Edde Jones mean that the 34-man squad is shorn of 10 players who featured for England at the World Cup last year, with Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Billy Vunoipola all sidelined, but Dan Cole has been dropped.

England begin their Six Nations title quest away to France on 2 February.
