England coach Eddie Jones has recalled Will Stuart and Adam Radwan in the 36-man training squad ahead of the autumn international game against New Zealand on Saturday.

Stuart has successfully recovered from a knee injury that he sustained in October and now returns to take the place of uncapped London Irish forward Tom Pearson.

Meanwhile, Newcastle bound Radwan takes the place of Max Malins with the latter injuring himself while playing for Saracens in the recently concluded game against Newcastle Falcons.

Owen Farrell is set to make his 100th Test appearance when they line up against the All Blacks at Twickehnam Stadium.

"For an England player, it's a massive opportunity," Jones said. "If you look at the history of the sport, the game's been going for 150 years and England's won 22 per cent of Tests against New Zealand.

"So, there's a narrative about the game that says England can't beat New Zealand. At the 2019 World Cup, I think we showed that if you've got the right attitude, the right game plan, then history can be broken.

"We've got a great opportunity this coming week to break history again and we look forward to the opportunity.

"If we go after them, then they're there for the taking and we're going to go after them."
