Six members of the Leicester Tigers senior squad have been retained by England men's head coach Eddie Jones, who has named a 26-man squad ahead of England’s Six Nations match against Ireland on Saturday (March 12) at Twickenham.

Jones has cut the squad from the 36-man outfit named on Sunday evening, which included Tigers hooker Nic Dolly.

Dolly will now return to the club ahead of the Gallagher Premiership game against London Irish at Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Saturday.

Following the clash with The Exiles, Tigers supporters can watch England take on Ireland among fellow fans in the Final Whistle bar at Tigers HQ.

England will name their matchday squad  to take on Ireland on Thursday afternoon.
