Nathan Earle, Alex Lozowski and Nick Isiekwe called up by Eddie Jones for Argentina tour
Saracens players Nathan Earle, Alex Lozowski and Nick Isiekwe have been named in the England squad to tour Argentina this summer.
The Sarries trio form part of a 31-man squad named by head coach Eddie Jones that will again be led by Northampton Saints hooker Dylan Hartley.
All three have yet to make their debut for England, though Lozowski has previously been named in the national training squad.
The Red Roses are scheduled to play Argentina twice on tour: in San Juan on June 10 and a week later in Santa Fe.
