Here's the 28-man squad Eddie Jones has named for this year's championship campaign

England Six Nations Squad 2021

Eddie Jones has named a 28-man England squad for this year’s Six Nations campaign, with Bristol scrum-half Harry Randall and Wasps centre Paolo Odogwu receiving their first call-ups.

The squad is smaller than normal but will be retained in camp throughout the tournament. Previously, with larger squads, players had been released to Gallagher Premiership clubs midweek, but due to the Covid pandemic England will operate a tight bubble, with minimal movement in and out.

Jones has also named a 12-man ‘shadow squad’ that will be part of the same testing protocols as the other 28 players.

Owen Farrell continues as captain while Courtney Lawes returns from injury. Mako Vunipola will also join the squad to undergo rehab.
