There is plenty of experience elsewhere in the 35-man group, however, boasting 898 caps between them.
Jones will take his players to Portugal for a week-long training camp early next week, before returning to Pennyhill Park to prepare for the clash with Italy in Rome on February 4.
Speaking after unveiling his group for the Italy opener, the Red Rose boss said: "I have selected the strongest available squad to prepare for our opening match against Italy.
"It is important we start the tournament well and we will spend the next two weeks training smart and really fine-tuning our gameplan for the Italy match next month.
"I am expecting a really positive training camp in Portugal and while we have a few players unavailable through injury or suspension, it has provided opportunity for others who will be desperate to be involved in the Italy game."
