WORCESTER Warriors' Ben Te'o is in England head coach Eddie Jones' training squad for a new year camp.

Thirty-four players will come together in Brighton on January 1 for two days.

The camp will begin preparations for England’s opening match of the NatWest 6 Nations against Italy on February 4 in Rome.

Jones said: “This camp in Brighton is important for us to set the tone as a squad ahead of the 6 Nations.

"We will need to improve if we are to hunt down our opponents and beat them.

"This tournament will be exciting and challenging as we know we will play against some very strong teams.

“Brighton will provide a great base to begin our preparations with players coming away with a clear plan for our opening match of the campaign against Italy.”

An England squad for the tournament will be announced on January 18 before the squad departs for a week’s training camp in Portugal three days later.

England have won the last two tournaments including the Grand Slam in 2016.
