Three Chiefs in England squad

Trio in next month's Six Nations

England head coach Eddie Jones has named three Exeter Chiefs players in his 34-man squad for the 2020 Six Nations. Luke Cowan-Dickie, Harry Williams and Ollie Devoto have rightfully earned their call-ups. 

Exeter's Jack Nowell and Henry Slade, who were both part of Jones' World Cup campaign, are ruled out with injuries.

On his selection Jones said: “It is always about winning the next game so we have picked the best squad available. At the same time we wanted to bring some young players in because we need to keep building our depth so for those new players it is an exciting opportunity for them.”

England will assemble at Pennyhill Park on Wednesday and travel to Portugal on Thursday ahead of their first match against France in Paris on Sunday 2nd February.
