England head coach Stuart Lancaster has named Danny Cipriani in his 20-man training squad, alongside 10 uncapped players.

Cipriani has not represented his country since winning his seventh cap against the All Blacks in 2008, but all of the 20 players named in this preliminary squad now have an opportunity to earn a place on the tour to New Zealand.

Those who do not make the cut will play against the Barbarians at Twickenham on Sunday June 1.

The final squads for the New Zealand tour and the Barbarians match will be announced at 12pm on Monday May 26.

The first set of England players are scheduled to fly out to New Zealand on May 27 and the rest of the squad will follow on June 2.

But so far only the Exeter Chiefs, Gloucester, Newcastle Falcons, London Irish, Sale Sharks and Worcester Warriors have released players for international duties.

The England squad will be completed after Bath, Saracens, Northampton, Leicester and Harlequins release their players, which they will do following the conclusion of the Amlin Cup final (May 23), Heineken Cup final (24) and the Aviva Premiership final (May 30).

Wasps will make their players available after their European Rugby Champions Cup play off games (May 18 and May 24).

England training squad:

Kieran Brookes (Newcastle Falcons), Freddie Burns (Gloucester Rugby), Danny Cipriani (Sale Sharks), Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs), Dave Ewers (Exeter Chiefs), Sam Hill (Exeter Chiefs), Tom Johnson (Exeter Chiefs), Matt Kvesic (Gloucester Rugby), Jonny May (Gloucester Rugby), Ben Morgan (Gloucester Rugby), Michael Paterson (Sale Sharks), Chris Pennell (Worcester Warriors), Dan Robson (Gloucester Rugby), Charlie Sharples (Gloucester Rugby), Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs), Tommy Taylor (Sale Sharks), Henry Thomas (Sale Sharks), Henry Trinder (Gloucester Rugby), Billy Twelvetrees (Gloucester Rugby), Marland Yarde (London Irish).
