Take a look at Eddie Jones' 36-man England squad for the Autumn Internationals below.

England Autumn Internationals Squad

After a horrific run of injuries Manu Tuilagi is set to play for England once again this weekend after getting named to the bench to face Australia. His last appearance was against Wales in 2016, and before that way back in 2014.

In other news Jamie George gets the starting hooker role ahead of Dylan Hartley and Joe Cockanasiga starts after an injury to Jack Nowell ruled him out.

Courntey Lawes also shifts to the second row with Sam Underhill and Brad Shields coming in. Nathan Hughes returns to the bench after a six-week ban for punching.

Eddie Jones said; “We’ve picked our best 23 for the Australia game. We know they have a unique style of attack so our ability to defend that is going to be important,”

“I’m really happy with the direction we’re going in terms of the way we play the game. We are developing a unique style of rugby, which is English and the players are proud to play that way.”

Eddie Jones has named his 36-man squad for England’s upcoming Autumn International Tests against South Africa, New Zealand, Japan and Australia.

There are eight uncapped players in the squad; Joe Cokanasiga (Bath Rugby), Nathan Earle (Harlequins), Ted Hill (Worcester Warriors), Zach Mercer (Bath Rugby), Ben Moon (Exeter Chiefs), Michael Rhodes (Saracens), Nick Schonert (Worcester Warriors) and Elliott Stooke (Bath Rugby).

However, Jones has controversially left out Gloucester fly-half and September’s Gallagher Premiership player of the month, Danny Cipriani. His last start was in a victory against South Africa earlier this year so his omission is a surprise.

Jones said; “I’m really happy with the squad. We can only control what we can control and injuries have happened. It gives an opportunity for some good new players to play some important Tests for England while players who have been in the squad before, will have to take on more responsibility.

“South Africa have been going really well. They have a new coach and have selected well. They play a traditional Springbok game up front and move the ball wide when they need to. We’ll need to take them on up front and when we have opportunities to score points we have to be good enough to take them.

“We love Twickenham. The players feel the support and we can’t wait to get out there and play in front of 82,000 against South Africa.”
