Two Leicester Tigers players have been announced in the extended England squad ahead of the 2024 Guinness Six Nations.

Amy Cokayne and Meg Jones have both been included in the three day camp, set to take place at St. George's Park.

Cokayne, with 72 international appearances to her name, is in line to make her return to international competition for the first time in 12 months, having not played for England since last year's Six Nations, where she scored twice in the Red Roses' opening clash with Scotland.

Jones, meanwhile, has 16 caps to her name having re-entered the international fold in the Autumn, playing a starring role, including a try against Australia as England triumphed in the inaugural WXV 1 tournament last October.

Following the training camp, the official squad will be announced on Monday, March 11. The tournament itself begins two weeks later, with England opening their campaign by taking on Italy at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi on Sunday, March 24.
