England head coach Eddie Jones will name his Six Nations squad later today.
Reports suggest that there will not be many surprises in the Australian's squad. The Times has reported that uncapped Wasps halfback Dan Robson is set to be handed a late chance to press his claims for World Cup selection at the cost of Danny Care.
Injuries to the likes of Chris Robshaw and Sam Underhill should see the likes of Ted Hill and Tom Curry included in the squad with Curry missing the tail end of the November Internationals through injury. Harlequins’ Alex Dombrandt has been a revelation with since making his senior debut and is surely on Jone's radar but is unlikely to displace Ted Hill in the squad with Maro Itoje, Courtney Lawes and Brad Shields all available for selection.
Jonathan Joseph is set to miss the start of the Six Nations as he works his way back to full fitness which could see Ollie Thorley being included in the squad while Henry Slade, Owen Farrell, Manu Tuilagi and Ben Te'o fill the midfield options.
Zach Mercer has been in stellar form for Bath but could miss out on selection, despite Jones' rating the youngster highly, with the likes of Nathan Hughes and Billy Vunipola at the disposal of the England head coach.
Mike Brown could get a recall to the national set-up having last featured for England in South Africa last year.
