- England centre Jonathan Joseph is among four British and Irish Lions players left out of Eddie Jones's squad for a training camp before the autumn Tests against Argentina, Australia and Samoa. George Kruis, Kyle Sinckler and James Haskell have also been omitted from the 33-man group that will gather in Oxford on Sunday despite touring New Zealand with Warren Gatland during the summer. Denny Solomona is absent after being reprimanded for a late-night drinking session during the last England camp and there is still no place for in-form Bath wing Semesa Rokoduguni. Harlequins' rising star Marcus Smith, 18, is the headline inclusion in the squad for the final get together before November's matches.
