Six Tigers retained for second Cup camp

England head coach Eddie Jones has named a 40-man squad for the second Rugby World Cup training camp ahead of the 2019 tournament in Japan.

George Ford, Jonny May, Manu Tuilagi, Ben Youngs, Dan Cole and Ellis Genge have all been included in the squad, seeing the Tigers six retained after featuring in the first training camp named by Jones.

The squad will assemble today in Bristol for a four-day camp, less than one month out from the first of their four World Cup warm-up fixtures.

England will play Wales (11 August) and Ireland (24 August) at Twickenham Stadium and Italy (6 September) in Newcastle as part of the Quilter Internationals as well as an away fixture against Wales (17 August) in Cardiff.

England will begin their Rugby World Cup campaign in Japan against Tonga in Sapporo (22 September, KO 11:15am UK time) before playing USA Rugby in Kobe (26 September, KO 11:45am UK time), Argentina in Tokyo (5 October, KO 09:00am UK time) and France in Yokohama (12 October, KO 09:15am UK time).
