Eddie Jones Names 36-Man England Squad For Autumn Internationals

Hughes was given an initial four-week ban for punching Ludlow the Gloucester flanker

No. 8 Ben Morgan has been recalled to the squad for the first time since 2015 after England were hit with injuries to Billy Vunipola and Sam Simmonds, as well as the suspension of Nathan Hughes.

Manu Tuilagi has overcome a succession of injuries to win inclusion and he will be competing with Ben Te'o - who has not played this season because of thigh and ankle problems - for selection in midfield.

England will play South Africa (3 November), New Zealand (10 November), Japan (17 November) and Australia (24 November) at Twickenham Stadium, with the kick off for all games at 3pm.

Jones also announced flyhalf Owen Farrell and hooker Dylan Hartley as co-captains of the side.

Cipriani was not included in head coach Eddie Jones' training squad that met in Bristol in September, but the fly-half was then named as the Premiership's Player of the Month for his impressive performances for Gloucester. 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, ' Jones said.

England also had problems at loosehead prop, with Mako Vunipola ruled out through a calf injury and Joe Marler having retired from worldwide duty. "We think Owen and George are the two best fly-halves and they've been consistently in the team since I came in 2016", Jones told talkSPORT.

"We have taken a slightly different approach this year".

'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'.

Forwards (20): Tom Curry, Charlie Ewels, Jamie George, Dylan Hartley (co-captain), Alec Hepburn, Ted Hill, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Courtney Lawes, Zach Mercer, Ben Moon, Ben Morgan, Michael Rhodes, Nick Schonert, Brad Shields, Kyle Sinckler, Elliott Stooke, Sam Underhill, Harry Williams, Mark Wilson.

Nathan Hughes, who would likely have stepped in to replace Billy Vunipola at number eight, is serving a six-week ban for punching an opponent, while prop Joe Marler, 28, unexpectedly retired from global rugby last month.
