Owen Farrell leads 36-man England Six Nations squad
With Farrell as captain and Marcus Smith also included at fly-half, George Ford misses out again as Eddie Jones selects uncapped Bath youngster Orlando Bailey

欧文法瑞尔 has been named as England captain for the 2022 Six Nations with a 36-player group selected by 埃迪·琼斯 ahead of the tournament.

The squad will assemble in Brighton on Monday 24 January for a five-day training camp ahead of the tournament. England open their campaign against Scotland at Murrayfield on 5 二月.

George Ford is again left out, 和 马库斯·史密斯 and Farrell preferred at fly-half alongside uncapped Bath youngster Orlando Bailey, who earns a first call-up. Farrell has not played since suffering an ankle injury during the autumn but is expected to be fit for the start of the Six Nations.

Bailey is one of six uncapped players in the squad. Wasps back-rower Alfie Barbeary is rewarded for strong club form and is joined in the back-row mix by Leicester’s Ollie Chessum, while Tommy Freeman of Northampton and London Irish flyer Ollie Hassell-Collins get the chance to push for places in the back three.

Manu Tuilagi is not included in the squad – the centre is yet to return to action after suffering an injury in England’s final Autumn Nations Series fixture against South Africa. There is a place, 然而, for Harlequins well-rounded uncapped centre Luke Northmore.

There are no recalls for either Mako or Billy Vunipola, but Jack Nowell is included for the first time in more than two years after an extended period of injury strife. Flanker Sam Underhill is a surprise omission, and Elliot Daly, who missed the autumn with an injury, is also not included.

Scrum-half Ben Youngs could become England’s most capped male player during the Six Nations – the 32-year-old is two behind Jason Leonard’s tally of 114.

“Selecting this squad has been a difficult task, we’ve got plenty of good young players coming through and some of our more experienced are rediscovering their best form,”琼斯说.

“We think this 36 for the first training week reflects a good balance of that experience and up-and-coming talent.

“In Brighton we’ll focus on getting the fundamentals of our game in play right and developing the cohesion of the team.

“The Six Nations is going to be the most competitive we’ve ever seen. All the countries performed well in the autumn, so we need to be at our best and improve with every game.”
