Teenager Smith named in England training squad

Teenager Smith named in England training squad”

Head coach Eddie Jones has made a decision to take another look at 18-year-old Smith, who only left college in the summer, having included hom in England's pre-season training camp in August.

Harlequins' 18-year-old fly-half Marcus Smith and Piers Francis of Northampton are included, although there is still no place for in-form Bath winger Semesa Rokoduguni.

England's players are scheduled to meet in Oxford on Sunday for the three-day training camp, as preparations begin for their clash against Argentina on November 11 at Twickenham.

"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 said. "He's an apprentice. He'll clean some boots and hold some bags", Jones said.

"This is the training squad and these are the players I want to look at".

He's got work to do on his game.

"We're sure he'll do that well".

Uncapped Bath man Dunn will also get the chance to impress England head coach Jones over three days of training in Oxford, starting on Sunday.

"Marcus Smith is going to be holding a lot of bags".
