Obviously a number of disappointed players, we feel for them, they've worked hard and they're excellent players and the only message we have for them is they've still got to be ready because the circumstances of the World Cup dictates that you have injuries and they could get their opportunity later down the track." 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND HEAD COACH, EDDIE JONES, SAYING: "Firstly I think it's always nice to bring new blood in.

I think if freshens everything up and when you've got that enthusiasm as young players do it helps to add to the squad.

Ruaridh (McConnochie), we've been watching quite closely through the club season and I was impressed by him.

And once he came in the camp he cemented our impression of him.

He's a very good worker, very good communicator, a mature boy, can play a number of positions.

So he was a pretty easy selection in the end." STORY: England coach Eddie Jones left experienced centre Ben Te'o out of his 31-man World Cup squad on Monday (August 12) and included uncapped winger Ruaridh McConnochie.

Jones opted for only two scrumhalves, the experienced Ben Youngs and rookie Willi Heinz, for the tournament in Japan starting next month.

Flyhalf Owen Farrell was named as captain and McConnochie is the only uncapped player in the squad.

Eight players named were from Premiership champions Saracens including lock Maro Itoje, number eight Billy Vunipola and prop Mako Vunipola.

Flanker Lewis Ludlam and hooker Jack Singleton, who won their first caps alongside Heinz in England's win over Wales in a warm-up match on Sunday, also made the cut.

But there was no place for Te'o, who was excluded from the final week of an England training camp after being involved in an altercation with team mate Mike Brown.

Although teams have until Sept.

8 to submit their squads to World Rugby, Jones decided to name his early.

England play three more warm-up matches -- away to Wales and home to Ireland and Italy -- before heading to Japan, where they begin their campaign against Tonga in Pool C on Sept.

22.
