England squad update

England squad update

The following 23 players have been retained by England to prepare for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations match against Ireland at Twickenham.  

Wasps centre Elliot Daly is set to make his England debut after Northampton Saints' Courtney Lawes misses out on the matchday 23 to welcome Ireland. 

England head coach Eddie Jones commented:

“I have been pleased with the hard work and attitude the squad have shown since Italy. Everyone wants to be on the field on Saturday so there were some tough selection calls. Elliot Daly has impressed in training and is now ready to be part of the match day 23.”
