England head coach Eddie Jones has named unchanged squad for the upcoming autumn international game against South Africa to be played at Twickenham Stadium.

Manu Tuilagi is in line to win his 50th cap for England with uncapped Newcastle Falcons' Sean Robinson also part of the squad.

“Playing South Africa at Twickenham – I’m really looking forward to it. I only wish the game is a little bit sooner because we left a lot out there against New Zealand,” said England lock Maro Itoje.

“While the second half was a bit more how we want to play, this week is an opportunity to hopefully play how we want to for the full 80 minutes.

“We have an incredible amount of potential in this team, we just need to unlock it. We are spending more and more time together and are becoming more cohesive, so hopefully it will come."

The last time these two teams met was in November last year when England went on to win the encounter 27-26.

England squad:

Forwards: Alex Coles, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Tom Curry, Ellis Genge, Jamie George, Joe Heyes, Jonny Hill, Maro Itoje, David Ribbans, Sean Robinson, Bevan Rodd, Sam Simmonds, Kyle Sinckler, Jack Singleton, Will Stuart, Hugh Tizard, Billy Vunipola, Mako Vunipola, Jack Willis

Backs: Joe Cokanasiga, Owen Farrell, Tommy Freeman, George Furbank, Will Joseph, Jonny May, Alex Mitchell, Cadan Murley, Jack Nowell, Guy Porter, Adam Radwan, Henry Slade, Marcus Smith, Freddie Steward, Manu Tuilagi, Jack van Poortvliet, Ben Youngs
