Eddie Jones silent on reasons for Te'o absense

England head coach Eddie Jones refused to discuss the reasons behind the omission of Ben Te'o from the 31-man squad named for the World Cup.

The 32-year-old centre was overlooked in favour of Northampton's Piers Francis, two weeks after being involved in a scuffle with team-mate Mike Brown during a social event at the squad's training camp in Treviso.

Jones would not disclose the reasons behind any of the players left out of his squad, insisting that they all need to be prepared to answer the call if injuries occur.

"I'm not going to go into reasons why he (Te'o) was not selected," Jones said at the press conference.
