England retain five Bath Rugby players ahead of Barbarians clash at Twickenham

13 June 2022

Eddie Jones has named his 36 player squad to prepare for their fixture against the Barbarians at Twickenham this weekend, including five Bath Rugby players.

Uncapped academy graduate Orlando Bailey is among the five, alongside Joe Cokanasiga and England regulars Charlie Ewels, Will Stuart and Sam Underhill.

After announcing his 36-man squad, Eddie Jones said: 

“This is a strong, diverse squad.  There are a lot of exciting, young players and some experienced players who have another opportunity to shine."

England are set to face the Barbarians at Twickenham on June 19 before heading to Australia this summer for a three-test series against the Wallabies.

With this weekend’s fixture playing a key part in the preparations for the summer tour, Jones highlights the opportunity this game gives all those included in the squad: “Everyone will be given the chance to make their case for being part of the Australia tour squad while we prepare for the Barbarians."
