Jones picks 31 for England's rugby tour

Head coach Eddie Jones waited nearly 24 hours after Warren Gatland confirmed his British & Irish Lions' squad for the three-Test tour to face world champions New Zealand in June and July, before revealing his plans for the two Tests against the Pumas.

England head coach Eddie Jones has named Denny Solomona in his 31-man squad for June's tour of Argentina.

Dylan Hartley remains as England captain after the hooker was overlooked for the British and Irish Lions squad for New Zealand announced on Wednesday.

That will be scant consolation for, among others, Christian Wade, Tommy Taylor, Dan Robson, Mike Haley, Josh Beaumont, Don Armand, Marland Yarde, Semesa Rokoduguni, Teimana Harrison, Danny Cipriani and Mike Williams, all of whom would have regarded the Tests in San Juan (10 June) and Santa Fe (17 June) and as a flawless opportunity to push their global credentials.

Will Collier (Harlequins, uncapped), Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs, 4 caps), Ben Curry (Sale Sharks, uncapped), Tom Curry (Sale Sharks, uncapped), Charlie Ewels (Bath Rugby, 3 caps), Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers, 1 cap), Dylan Hartley - captain (Northampton Saints, 84 caps), James Haskell (Wasps, 75 caps), Paul Hill (Northampton Saints, 5 caps), Nathan Hughes (Wasps, 8 caps), Nick Isiekwe (Saracens, uncapped), Joe Launchbury (Wasps, 42 caps), Matt Mullan (Wasps, 15 caps), Chris Robshaw (Harlequins, 55 caps), Sam Underhill (Ospreys/Bath Rugby, uncapped), Harry Williams (Exeter Chiefs, uncapped), Tom Wood (Northampton Saints, 50 caps).

"We're looking to discover the best young talent in England and see how we can bring them through", he added.

"You've only got to look at the five-eighths (fly-halves)".

Jones, who won his first 17 Tests as England coach before Ireland denied him back-to-back Grand Slams, said his own career proved success was about attitude and not lifelong allegiance. He's still got a lot of work to do on his game, positionally, but we can work on those areas with him.

"We've got a great opportunity to take a combination of experienced players and some bright young talent that I'm extremely excited by".

On Exeter scrum-half Jack Maunder: "Maunder is an interesting player, a cheeky little b****r which is why I like him". "If they're not keen to tour they won't play for England again, it's as simple as that", he said.

Jones has tapped into the highly successful England Under-20 production line in picking the 15 debutants, but his senior players will form the core of the starting XV for the two Tests in San Juan and Santa Fe. "If players aren't like that they won't play for England". The only thing the senior players ought to ask of them is to tone it down.

"I'm looking forward to working with the Currys because I want to find out if I can tell the difference between the two of them", joked Jones, who was in the same team at Sydney club Randwick as Australia's Ella brothers.
