Bath Rugby quintet called up to short England training camp

21 September 2021

Five Bath Rugby players have been selected in a 45-man England squad for a short training camp next week.

Charlie Ewels, Sam Underhill, Will Stuart, Beno Obano and Anthony Watson have all been selected by Eddie Jones and will meet with the rest of the group at The Lensbury, Teddington on Sunday 26 September until Tuesday 28 September. 

 It will be the first time England’s new coaching staff will work with the players, after the appointments of Richard Cockerill, Martin Gleeson and Anthony Seibold over the summer.

"This is an exciting squad made up of experienced players and young guys who did well in the summer and earned their place again," said Jones. 

"We have left out some experienced players but we’re really clear that the door isn’t closed to them, and we’re looking forward to seeing them work hard to get back into contention.

"We have five campaigns now until the 2023 World Cup so each one counts, and this is a chance for this 45 to impress the new coaching staff."

The camp will form part of England’s preparations for the Autumn Internationals in November, when they will host Tonga, Australia and world champions South Africa.
