25 Janvier, 2021, 10:38 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Uncapped backs Paolo Odogwu and Harry Randall were both included in reigning champions England's 28-man squad for the Six Nations Championship announced Friday.

Scrum-half Randall, also 23, has won rave reviews for his form with Bristol.

Bath prop Beno Obano is the third uncapped player in the squad.

Kyle Sinckler, who is now on a suspension and will miss the game against Scotland has been left out.

Sinckler, however, could return when he has served his ban.

"We're very grateful to the Premiership Rugby, the clubs and RPA [Rugby Players Association] for allowing us to have 28 players throughout the tournament, we're very happy with the number and it's testament to the growing relationships between all parties".

Notable omissions are Wasps flanker Jack Willis and Bath back Jonathan Joseph, who are named in a 12-man shadow squad.

Head coach Eddie Jones has also named a "shadow squad" of twelve players who will be part of the same testing protocols as the tournament squad.

Having spent most of the last four years refusing to pick three scrumhalves in his training squads, Jones has now gone for a trio in the smaller group, having found it impossible to ignore the sparky inventiveness of 23-year-old Randall.

The squad will meet up at St. George's Park on January 27, with coach Jones, who is isolating after assistant Matt Proudfoot tested positive for coronavirus, set to arrive a day later.

"He continues to develop his game and his running and his initiative in attack is the thing that's really caught the eye".

"We're really excited by the players we've got".

Odogwu has impressed at centre and wing for Wasps this season.
