Mark Wilson in England Six Nations squad

Friday 22 January 2021

Newcastle Falcons' back-rower Mark Wilson has been named in England's squad for the upcoming Guinness Six Nations.

The 31-year-old will be looking to add to his 19 England caps during the tournament, which gets underway when they host Scotland on Saturday February 6.

England will retain a 28-player squad throughout the tournament, following an agreement with Premiership Rugby, The RPA and The RFU in recognition of the challenges presented by COVID-19.

The squad will meet up at St George’s Park, England football’s training base, on Wednesday January 27. They will then move to their base, The Lensbury in Teddington, ahead of their first game against Scotland.

England head coach Eddie Jones said: “This has been a really tough squad to pick and I know there are a lot of disappointed players who haven’t been selected.

“We’re really excited by the players we have got, it’s a very vibrant squad and we are looking forward to getting started next week.

“We’re very grateful to Premiership Rugby, the clubs and the RPA 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.

“Ultimately our goal is to win the Six Nations and to do that we’ll need to work hard, prepare well each day and take it as it comes.”
