England boss Eddie Jones admits he is unsure how he is going to decide on which players to include in his EPS squad.

The Australian watched on as his Red Rose side recorded a second successive win over Argentina on Saturday, triumphing 35-25 in Santa Fe.
With the majority of his first XV away on British & Irish Lions duty, Jones has used the trip to South America to try out a number of young players and his starlets have undoubtedly impressed.
His next aim is to decide who to include in his 45-man EPS squad and he admits he has plenty to think about, with 61 players currently on his radar.
The 57-year-old says he is pleased with what he has seen during the tour and concedes he now has a number of tricky calls to make.
"I am very pleased for the team, I am pleased for the young players," he said. "I am pleased that they have got some more growth in them. It is now a chance to move forward.
"We have to try to fit 61 players into a 45-man EPS squad. That's the next big thing I need to do."
