England squad update Monday 21 May

England head coach Eddie Jones has called up 35 players to prepare for England’s Quilter Cup match against the Barbarians on Sunday at Twickenham Stadium (KO 3pm, live on Sky Sports Action).
 
Following Harlequins' announcement today that England coach Paul Gustard will join the club as head of rugby following the conclusion of the South Africa tour, Eddie Jones said: “I wish Gussy all the best at Quins. He is a talented young English coach and a very good choice for the role. He has made a big contribution to the England coaching team as our defence coach and I’m happy that he has this opportunity to develop and prove himself in a head of rugby role."
 
A recruitment process is underway for a new defence coach.
