Cape Town - England head coach Eddie Jones has selected his latest squad to take part in a training camp at the end of the week. 

33 players will convene in Oxford on Sunday 24 September for the three-day camp. 

The squad includes uncapped 18-year-old Harlequins flyhalf Marcus Smith and Bath hooker Tom Dunn while Quins prop Kyle Sinckler, Wasps flanker James Haskell and Bath centre Jonathan Joseph are not included. 

The camp will provide a chance for the squad to continue their preparations for the upcoming end-of-year series that will see England play Argentina (11 November), Australia (18 November) and Samoa (25 November). 

“This camp in Oxford is a really positive opportunity for the group to come back together and sharpen our focus and preparation ahead of our first match against Argentina,” Jones told England Rugby. 

“This is our most important game this year and we want the players to come away from camp having trained well with a clear plan of how we want to play and win against the Pumas."
