England side to face Baa Baas Sunday 28th May 2017

Eddie Jones has named his England squad to face the Barbarians in the Old Mutual Wealth Cup on Sunday at Twickenham Stadium (kick off 3pm, live on Sky Sports HD).

Robshaw and Ford co-captain the non-Test side on Sunday and Jones explained why he has shared the responsibility of leading the side. 

“I’ve decided to have co-captains this weekend with Chris Robshaw and George Ford," said Jones.

"We need the responsibility of leadership shared. Chris will look after the forwards and defence while George will look after the backs and attack. It splits the responsibility nicely and with so many younger players there we need co-captains rather than just one guy responsible for everything."

Generally a good outing for the England selection I thought. A number of the "next generation" look likely to be key players for the future.
