Cumbrian hooker Jamie Blamire has received his latest England call-up.

The Seaton star, 24, has been named in a 36-man squad for a training camp.

It comes ahead of next month's game against Barbarians and July's tour to Australia.

Newcastle Falcons man Blamire, who has six England caps, gets the nod for a training spell Eddie Jones regards as important ahead of this summer's action.

The head coach said: "We’re going to use this camp as an opportunity to prepare a base game for the Barbarians fixture and for a really important Australia tour.

"We’ll focus on how we want to play, how we want to be as a team off the field and continue to develop the squad cohesiveness and behaviours.

"It is also 16 months to the World Cup and every minute counts. We want a hard-working and enjoyable environment for the players and make sure we are all on the same page. We are allowed a squad of 36 players, so it has been a balancing act.  

"We want to take a look at some younger players and prepare a base camp for the Barbarians game, particularly as we will be without the Premiership finalists, and also give some senior players a rest as we get to a crucial part of the season.

"These players will still be in contention for the Australia tour."

Jones' squad includes Joe Cokanasiga, Owen Farrell, Manu Tuilagi, Anthony Watson and Jack Willis, who all return after injury.

London Irish duo Henry Arundell and Will Joseph, plus Leicester Tigers’ Jack van Poortvliet, are involved for the first time.

England take on Barbarians at Twickenham on Sunday, June 19 while the Australia tour sees games against the Wallabies on July 2, 9 and 16.
