INJURY UPDATE: Injuries sustained in Wasps’ Premiership clash with Northampton Saints yesterday have knocked two England players out of Eddie Jones November Tests squad.

The RFU confirmed this afternoon that Matt Mullan and Elliot Daly will not travel to Portugal with the England squad this afternoon after picking up injuries yesterday.

Mullan (elbow) and Daly (knee) will remain with their club for treatment and will have scans over the next couple of days.

No additional players have been called up to travel today concluded the statement.

Jones has named his England squad to begin their preparations for the opening match of the Series against Argentina.

Wasps flank James Haskell has been left out of England’s squad for their first November international against Argentina at Twickenham, but Denny Solomona made the cut.

England will play Argentina on November 11 at Twickenham Stadium before facing Australia (November 18) and Samoa (November 25).

This will be England’s fourth Test against the Pumas in the last year having beaten them in last season’s Test Series and twice on the tour of Argentina in June.

England then face Australia and Samoa on successive weekends at Twickenham.
