First five Umaga is one of eight uncapped players named in the squad.

The 21-year-old was born in the UK and has played age group rugby for England in the past.

Meanwhile Billy Vunipola is set to miss the start of the tournament after the No. 8 broke his arm playing for Saracens in the European Champions Cup on Sunday.

Saracens did not give a time frame for Vunipola's absence and he was absent from the 34-man squad list announced by Jones.
