Wales Fail To Clinch Top Spot In Latest Rugby World Rankings

England head coach Eddie Jones

Yet his party for Japan features an uncapped player in Bath wing Ruaridh McConnochie, with three of his 31 - scrum-half Willi Heinz, flanker Lewis Ludlam and hooker Jack Singleton all only making their England debuts in Sunday's 33-19 warm-up win over Wales at Twickenham.

Global governing body World Rugby have this year ordered referees to dismiss players for risky tackles in the head and neck area, regardless of intent, as they look to make the game safer.

Jones refused to go into details over the exclusion of Te'o who was previously reprimanded for a late-night drinking session with Billy Vunipola at the end of this year's Six Nations.

Eddie Jones has described the red card shown to All Blacks lock Scott Barrett at the weekend as "ridiculous". "We feel for them".

"We saw two instances today when that could have happened, and I urge World Rugby - though I don't think they do anything at great pace - to get some consistency in that area". I was impressed by him.

"Lewis came from nowhere. I thought he was absolutely outstanding, he's worked really hard in the off-season to make himself a bit bigger and a bit more dynamic - we'll see a lot more of him".

Australian coach Jones has significant World Cup experience - he was in charge of the Australia team that lost to England in the 2003 final and was a consultant with South Africa when the Springboks won in 2007.

But captain Owen Farrell insists England can be trusted in the Far East and that there are no bad apples in the squad.

Leicester Tigers forward Dan Cole and scrum-half Youngs are the most experienced players included in the selection - the pair boast 86 global caps each and both represented England in their disappointing home Rugby World Cup campaign in 2015.

"We have taken the decision to go early because of what we learnt from previous campaigns", he said. "But as we know the World Cup is an incredible tournament where opportunities can present themselves and all those players who have missed out have been told they have to be ready".

England begin their 2019 World Cup pool campaign against Tonga in Sapporo on September 22.

Jones has named his squad almost a month ahead of World Rugby's September 8 deadline, with England still to play three warm-up fixtures - a return clash against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday followed by matches against Ireland and Italy.
