Cambridge-based Fraser Dingwall named in England squad
Fraser Dingwall has been named in the England squad in preparation for their summer series of fixtures.
The Northampton Saints centre, who was part of the mini and youth set-up at Cambridge, is one of 21 uncapped players in the 34-strong squad.
Former Cambridge scrum-half Ben Spencer, who is now at Bath, is also in the squad.
England will play an A team fixture against Scotland A at the Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Sunday, JUne 27, followed by games against the USA (July 4) and Canada (July 10) at Twickenham.
England head coach Eddie Jones said: “This is the first squad of three and we’ll include players from the other clubs where appropriate, when they become available. We’ve also given some of our senior players the chance to get some important rest and recovery time after back-to-back seasons, and with no proper pre-season.
“For this group it’s a chance to come into the England environment and really show what they can do. We expect them to be enthusiastic, full of energy and we want them to know there is no limit to their horizon.
“There is a lot of talent in this squad but the challenge for them is to turn talent into performance. We’re really looking forward to working with this group of young players and see where we can take them. They have the opportunity to take on the world.”
