England Rugby men's squad is returning to Jersey to train for their autumn internationals.

Eddie Jones' side will be in the island from 24 October for a five day camp to prepare for their campaign against Argentina, Japan, New Zealand and world champions South Africa.

England trained at Jersey Reds' ground and the Strive centre last year.

Eddie Jones praised the facilities:

“We enjoyed our time in Jersey last year, it has excellent facilities and the island is a great setting for a productive training camp.  It helped us lay the foundations for a successful autumn campaign and we want for more of the same this year."

England beat Tonga, Australia and South Africa at Twickenham last November following their stay in the island.

“We have 13 Tests to the Rugby World Cup so each game is a great learning opportunity and a chance to keep moving forward for this young team.  It’s vital that we keep building our cohesion and adapting tactically."
