Four Tigers in squad ahead of Springboks Test

Four Leicester Tigers players remain with the England squad preparing for the final Test of the autumn, against South Africa at Twickenham this weekend.

England head coach Eddie Jones has named a 34-player squad which includes uncapped Leicester hooker Nic Dolly and club colleagues George Martin, Freddie Steward and Ben Youngs.

Tigers captain Ellis Genge was withdrawn from the squad to face Australia last weekend after a positive test for Covid and has been placed in isolation.

Owen Farrell and Jamie George have withdrawn from the squad with injuries picked up in England’s 32-15 win over Australia.

Gloucester front-rowers Harry Elrington and Jack Singleton have been added to the squad and Joe Marler will join them on Friday after completing his 10-day isolation period following his positive COVID test result.
England against South Africa is a 3.15pm kick-off on Saturday with live coverage on Amazon Prime Sport and TalkSPORT.
