Tigers in England squad to face All Blacks

England head coach Eddie Jones has named a 35-man squad ahead of next weekend's Twickenham test match against New Zealand in the second fixture of the 2018 Quilter Internationals series on Saturday, November 10.

Included in the squad are Leicester Tigers quartet George Ford, Jonny May, Ben Youngs and Manu Tuilagi, with the latter the only of the four to not feature in Saturday's November series opener against South Africa, which England won 12-11.

Tuilagi was left out of the matchday squad after originally being named on the bench for the clash with the Springboks after the Leicester centre suffered a hamstring strain during the build-up to the Twickenham fixture.

Harlequins centre Joe Marchant will also join up with the squad for the first time this series, while Sale Sharks forward Tom Curry will have an ankle injury assessed he sustained during England’s win on Saturday.
