Uncapped trio named in England squad for Six Nations opener at Twickenham

Bath prop Nathan Catt, Leicester flanker Mike Williams and Saracens back Alex Lozowski are the three surprise inclusions in England's 34-man squad for their Six Nations opener against France on 4th February. The uncapped trio seem to have made quite an impression on England head coach Eddie Jones, who decided to include them in his squad for the crucial tournament opener.

Speaking about his decision to call up the trio, Jones said, “I’ve been impressed with the three uncapped players named in the squad.
