England head coach Eddie Jones has named his team to take on Wales in Round 3 of the Six Nations this weekend.

Captain Owen Farrell is at inside centre, Henry Slade at outside centre and George Ford stays at fly-half. Ben Youngs continues at scrumhalf, with Jonny May (left) and Anthony Watson (right) on the wings.
Jamie George returns at hooker, with Mako Vunipola and Kyle Sinckler as props alongside in the back row. Maro Itoje and Jonny Hill stay in the second row.
Mark Wilson starts as blindside flanker, Tom Curry is openside flanker and Billy Vunipola continues at No. 8.
George Martin could make his England debut after being named as on the bench. Luke Cowan-Dickie, Ellis Genge, Will Stuart, Ben Earl, Charlie Ewels, Dan Robson and Max Malins make up the replacements.
