Eddie Jones has named 15 uncapped players in his England squad to tour Argentina , with rugby league convert Denny Solomona handed his first call-up despite making just 13 rugby union appearances.

Defence coach Paul Gustard adds the line-out and kick-off to his coaching remit and former Australia back Glen Ella, who previously toured with England in Australia in 2016, will link-up again as attack coach, supported by skills coach Rory Teague.

"We have picked the best squad we have available and we are looking forward to going to Argentina and winning 2-0," said Jones.

"There are a few new faces in the set-up so every training session and team meeting will count.  "The Pumas are a physically aggressive side and they have become very good at playing unstructured rugby; we need to make sure we control the structural part of the game and our defence will play an absolutely crucial role."

England play the first test in San Juan on June 10 and the second in Sante Fe a week later.
