England head coach Eddie Jones has named a 32-man squad to begin preparations for their second NatWest 6 Nations match against Wales on Saturday 10 February.

The England squad arrived back in London on Monday afternoon from Rome following their 46-15 win against Italy in the opening round of the tournament.

Saracens scrum half Richard Wigglesworth has been added to the squad following an injury to Ben Youngs, with Exeter Chiefs hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie also coming in.

Wasps No 8 Nathan Hughes will come into camp this week to be assessed on when he is likely to be available to play during the championship. 

England take on Wales at 4.45pm at Twickenham Stadium in a match which is live on ITV.
