Jones name his 31-man squad for Japan 2019


Eddie Jones have shown his hand early as he announced his World Cup squad for Japan 2019.

In the 31-man squad Ruaridh McConnochie may have been seen as a surprise selection as the only uncapped player.

Ruaridh McConnochie made the transition from Sevens to XV’s and it seemed to have paid of for him.

Following there first caps against Wales on Sunday, Jones also included Lewis Ludlam, Jack Singleton and Willi Heinz.

There was also no Brad Shields who made the move from New Zealand to England as he is still recovering from a foot injury.

Jones also went with Dan Coles at tighthead over Harry Williams. Cole will go to his third World Cup as will Courtney Lawes and Ben Youngs.

  1. I will be taking a visceral JOY in each of Eddie’s losses given he left out Danny Cipriani.
    He **** his pants and NO ONE will change it for him.
    Deserves every squish.
