EX-WORCESTER Warriors ace Jack Singleton will hope to win his first senior cap for England after being named on the bench against Wales at Twickenham on Sunday (2pm).

The Saracens-bound hooker will be aiming to impress head coach Eddie Jones who announces his World Cup squad on Monday.

Singleton joined Warriors’ academy from Sarries in 2014 before making his first-team debut against Enisei-STM in Russia in October 2016.

During his time at Sixways Singleton quickly gained international recognition, appearing twice in non-cap matches against the Barbarians at Twickenham.

The 23-year-old was also called up for England’s tour of Argentina in the summer of 2017 but despite being among the replacements for two Tests he didn’t get on.

He will now be hoping it will be third time lucky after being selected in the 23-man squad to face Wales.

Jones said: “Our team selection and tactics in our next four games are all about developing a team capable of winning in Japan and our overarching target of being ready when we get on the plane on September 8 to win the World Cup.”

“We are looking forward to playing at Twickenham and giving the home crowd something to smile about.”

Meanwhile, Josh Adams who also left Warriors this summer has been named on the wing for Wales.

England: Daly; McConnochie, Slade, Francis, Watson; Ford, Heinz; Genge, Cowan-Dickie, Cole, Launchbury, Ewels, Curry, Underhill, Vunipola.

Replacements: Singleton, Marler, Williams, Kruis, Ludlam, Youngs, Marchant, Cokanasiga.

Wales: L Williams; North, Davies, Parkes, Adams; Anscombe, Davies; Smith, Owens, Francis, Beard, A W Jones (C), Wainwright, Tipuric, Moriarty.

Replacements: Dee, W Jones, Lewis, Ball, Shingler, T Williams, D Biggar, Watkin.
