Atkinson & May called up for England ahead of Autumn Nations Series

Eddie Jones has included two Gloucester Rugby players in his Autumn Nations Series squad. Jonny May and Mark Atkinson have been included with Atkinson hoping to win his first cap for England.

Both players have made a huge impact on the pitch for the Cherry and Whites in the opening rounds of the Gallagher Premiership, something that has caught the eye of the England head coach.

May is a seasoned international in the England shirt with 66 caps for the national team and will be looking to continue his success in the white shirt.

Atkinson has had a strong opening start to the domestic campaign and has subsequently earned his place in the England squad, following his inclusion in the first training camp. A regular performer in both attack and defence, he will be hoping to claim his first place in an England match-day 23.

The Autumn Nations Series runs from the 30 October to the 21 November across four weekends and showcases some of the best international rugby.

England face Tonga in their opening fixture and round-up their campaign against world champions, South Africa. All England fixtures to be shown on Amazon Prime.
