England coach Eddie Jones has named uncapped Bath fullback Ruaridh McConnochie in the 31-man squad for the Rugby World Cup that kicks-off in Japan next month.

Having converted from sevens game to the XV, the 27-year-old had an impressive season for Bath whilst Lewis Ludlam, Jack Singleton and Willi Heinz are also part of the squad after catching the eye of Jones.

Piers Francis has been preferred over Ben Te'o but Charlie Ewels misses. Brad Shields has been left out as he recovers from injury while Dan Cole makes the cut at tighthead in the squad captained by Owen Farrell.

Also live on Periscope, Joe and Chris brought their reactions live to TRU's followers less than half an hour after the squad was announced. Listen to the podcast below!
