London - Arab Today

Eight uncapped players have made Eddie Jones' squad of 35 for their Six Nations opener against Italy on February 4.

Loosehead props Alec Hepburn of Exeter Chiefs and Lewis Boyce of Harlequins are promoted in the absence of Joe Marler, Ellis Genge and Beno Obano.

Elsewhere, there are places for pacey Saracens wing Nathan Earle and Northampton Saints playmaker Harry Mallinder - both of whom toured Argentina last summer without winning a cap.

Newcastle Falcons back-rower Gary Graham continues his involvements, as do Bath hooker Tom Dunn, Harlequins fly-half Marcus Smith and Zach Mercer.

Significantly, Bath back-rower Mercer has been stripped of his 'apprentice' tag, paving the way for a Test debut in Rome

In a victory for the RFU's player pathway, six of these rookies - all except Dunn and Graham - have featured for England Under-20 over the past five years. 

Intriguingly, Exeter Chief Jack Nowell is listed as an 'inside back', having spent his entire international career to date on the wing.
