Ewels amongst seven Bath Rugby players named in England training squad

9 May 2016

Charlie Ewels has received his first call-up to a senior England training squad, alongside six other Bath Rugby players.

Ewels, Dave Attwood, Ollie Devoto, George Ford, Jonathan Joseph, Semesa Rokodugni and Anthony Watson were among those named by Eddie Jones in his squad for a three-day training camp in Brighton.

“The Brighton training camp is a good opportunity for England to get together and train hard ahead of the Wales game and summer tour,” said Jones. “While we will be without those players involved in the Premiership semi-finals it’s crucial that we spend as much time together as possible.

“We have an important game at Twickenham at the end of the month and then a challenging tour to Australia. It’s a challenge that really excites us and we’re looking forward to starting our preparation.

“There’s lots of hard work to be done if we are going to play with the intensity needed to beat southern hemisphere teams. We know the speed of the game in Australia will be considerably higher than the RBS 6 Nations, so this short camp, as well as the preparation time ahead of Wales, is going to be vital to our progression.

“Tour places are still up for grabs and I expect the players in this camp, as well as those involved in the play-offs, to continue to make their case for selection.”
