WORCESTER Warriors club captain Ted Hill insists competition for England places does not influence his performance and says his focus is on being his own man ahead of potential Twickenham appearance.

On Tuesday the back-row forward was named in Eddie Jones' squad for England's clash with the Barbarians on Sunday, alongside Warriors teammate Ollie Lawrence.

Hill and Lawrence were both involved in the training camp last week and Jones decided to retain them both for the annual Baa-Baas fixture this weekend.

Being in the national set-up, obvious comparisons have been made between Hill and the competitors in his position, especially from the likes of Wasps' Jack Willis and Bristol Bears' Ben Earl.

Despite the constant chatter of national selection and test caps, Hill is focussing on himself.

"As everyone has seen, they (Willis and Earl) have been excellent and they have got great attributes," he said.

"Jack Willis at the breakdown is outstanding and the same with Ben Earl and they’re both so good in the loose as well.

"In terms of watching them, it’s great to pick up little things they do but for me, I focus on what I can do and how I can improve my own game.

"I don’t want to be like them, I want to be like me."

Following the game on Sunday, Jones will select a squad to tackle the busy autumn international period, including England's trip to Rome next week to finish the delayed 2020 Six Nations campaign against Italy on Saturday before facing Ireland, Wales and Georgia in the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup in November.
