Jones drop Brown from squad to face Springboks


We are use to England coach Eddie Jones springing some surprises through the years and on Tuesday he dropped another, leaving Mike Brown out of his 25-man squad.

It is the first time Jones have left out the England fullback since he took over the team in 2016.

Brown has 72 caps for England but will play no part against the Springboks this weekend.

It looks like Jones will pick Elliot Daly as his fullback for this weekend test against the Springboks.

Jones also released Chris Ashton from the squad which point to Zach Mercer taking the number eight jumper this weekend.

England were also given a huge blow with the back injury to Courtney Lawes. He will not be playing against the Springboks but there is hope that he will be ready for the All Black test.
