England have named their squad for the 2019 RWC. The squad is as follows:


Dan Cole (Leicester Tigers), Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs), Tom Curry (Sale Sharks), Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers), Jamie George (Saracens), Maro Itoje (Saracens), George Kruis (Saracens), Joe Launchbury (Wasps), Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints), Lewis Ludlam (Northampton Saints), Joe Marler(Harlequins, 58 caps), Kyle Sinckler (Harlequins), Jack Singleton (Saracens), Sam Underhill (Bath Rugby), Billy Vunipola (Saracens), Mako Vunipola (Saracens), Mark Wilson (Newcastle Falcons/Sale Sharks)


Joe Cokanasiga (Bath Rugby), Elliot Daly (Saracens), Owen Farrell (Saracens), George Ford (Leicester Tigers), Piers Francis (Northampton Saints), Willi Heinz (Gloucester Rugby), Jonathan Joseph (Bath Rugby), Jonny May (Leicester Tigers), Ruaridh McConnochie (Bath Rugby), Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs), Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs), Manu Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers), Anthony Watson (Bath Rugby), Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers)

A few notable ommissions and the surprise inclusion of uncapped Ruaridh McConnochie.

No place for Dylan Hartley and apparently Mike Brown and Ben Teo'o were left out of the squad after they had an "altercation" at a training camp. Must have been quite some "altercation" to leave out those two names!

Should we start a thread to deal with the World Cup squads?

Great to see Lewis in after a solid debut yesterday.

Not convinced by Francis at centre and leaving Care and Cipriani out is crazy

Your man Lewis had a nice debut Dave.

Dave congrats to the youngster - he did very well yesterday,   his father must be very proud of him.

Yes very chuffed for him - such a nice family. Dad still plays rugby and he is my age!!! Mom is the schools netball coach.

Lewis has always put his body on the line. Yesterday he looked in agony in the last 10min he was on but he was not going to lie down - so typical of him
