Gloucester fly-half Danny Cipriani has been included in England’s squad for their second World Cup training camp.

England head coach Eddie Jones has named a 31-man squad for the five-day camp at The Lensbury Hotel in London.

Piers Francis, Willi Heinz, Courtney Lawes and Ollie Thorley are also called up for next week’s camp, with England’s World Cup training squad to then be announced on Thursday, 4 July.

“It has been a really positive week,” said Jones of the camp so far.

“We have worked on our fundamentals of the game, a little bit of physical conditioning and I am really pleased with the attitude of the players.

“They have all come back from their leave in excellent condition and the best I have seen in the time I have been with England.”

Harlequins pair Kyle Sinckler and Marcus Smith are set to return to their clubs next week, while Jack Nowell will join George Kruis and Mako Vunipola in camp to continue their rehabilitation.
