FORMER Chippenham RFC hooker Tom Dunn has been named in the England training squad to take part in a pre-season camp at the Lensbury Hotel this weekend.

Dunn, 24, made the transition from Bath's Academy to the first team in 2015, going on to make 15 appearances last season, scoring one try.

He joins clubmates Charlie Ewels, Sam Underhill and Anthony Watson in the 27-strong training squad for the three-day camp in Teddington.

Dan Cole, Owen Farrell, Jamie George, Maro Itoje, Jack Nowell, Kyle Sinckler as well as Watson will spend one day in camp while the other British & Irish Lions players, including Bath's Jonathan Joseph, have opted to remain on their summer break.

Nine players who made their debuts on England’s successful tour of Argentina in June are called up, including Tom Curry, Piers Francis, Nick Isiekwe, Alex Lozowski, Jack Maunder, Denny Solomona, Underhill, Harry Williams and Mark Wilson.

Manu Tuilagi will join up with the England squad having last played for his country during the 2016 RBS 6 Nations.
