Tigers duo retained by England

Figure image
Dan Cole and Ben Youngs have been retained in a 25-man England squad ahead of Saturday's match against South Africa at Twickenham.

Leicester Tigers prop Cole, who has 65 caps, and scrum-half Youngs (61 caps) are among the most experienced players in the squad selected by head coach Eddie Jones for the start of the autumn’s Old Mutual Wealth Series.
Ellis Genge, who won his first cap against Wales last season, is among the players released back to the clubs.
Coverage of Saturday’s game will be shown ‘as live’ at Welford Road after Leicester’s Anglo-Welsh Cup fixture against Newport Gwent Dragons. Tickets for that fixture are available now.
