England head coach Eddie Jones has named his 36-man squad ahead of the 2018 Autumn Internationals, in which the national side will face the Springboks, All Blacks, Japan and the Wallabies.
Jones has appointed Owen Farrell and Dylan Hartley as co-captains ahead of the November period. Hartley recently returned from ongoing concussion complaints while Farrell stood in for the 93-times capped hooker during the summer.
Jones shows Cipriani cold shoulder
Gloucester and fan favourite fly-half Danny Cipriani has been left out of a second squad since guiding England to a final Test victory during the three-match series in South Africa over the summer, despite the fact Jones has attended Gloucester's games more than any other so far this season, with ample opportunity to assess the 31-year-old's impressive early season form.
Cipriani's clubmate Ben Morgan has been included in his first national squad for three-years, having last featured at Test level under former Red Rose boss Stuart Lancaster at the disastrous 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Midfield heavyweights return
Bruising midfield duo Ben Te'o and Manu Tulagi have both been included in Jones' latest squad, despite current question marks over the pair's fitness.
Te'o and Tuilagi will look to compete with inform Exeter Chiefs man Henry Slade and the currently suspended Saracens' man Alex Lozowski for a spot in England's midfield.
In light of the injury to Wasps scrum-half Dan Robson, Richard Wigglesworth returns to the national setup, with Saracens teammate and summer tourist Ben Spencer missing out on selection.
19-year-old Worcester flanker, Ted Hill, is the latest of England's apprentices, enjoying a first senior squad inclusion after bursting onto the Premiership scene during the early rounds of the season.
The blindside has been touted by former Irish international and Worcester captain Donncha O'Callaghan as a potential British and Irish Lion, while current Warriors boss Alan Solomons remains adamant Hill will go on to enjoy a successful Test career wearing the rose.
Exeter duo batten down propping injury crisis
With an extensive injury list at loosehead prop (Mako Vunipola, Ellis Genge, Beno Obano, Matt Mullan), Exeter Chiefs duo Alec Hepburn and Ben Moon step in to fill the void.
While both props have extensive Premiership experience, only Hepburn has been capped internationally, with two bench appearances to his name during the 2018 Six Nations.
Unavailable for selection
Jack Clifford (Harlequins), Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers), Nathan Hughes (Wasps), Nick Isiekwe (Saracens), Jonathan Joseph (Bath Rugby), Joe Launchbury (Wasps), Chris Robshaw (Harlequins), Dan Robson (Wasps), Billy Vunipola (Saracens), Mako Vunipola (Saracens), Anthony Watson (Bath Rugby).
