England Team Named For Six Nations Battle With France

Round two.

Head coach Eddie Jones has named his England team for this weekend’s crucial Six Nations clash with France at Twickenham.

Jones has made two changes to the starting XV that beat Ireland last weekend with Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints) selected in the second row following the injury to Maro Itoje in Dublin.

Chris Ashton is named on the right wing in place of Jack Nowell who will be among the replacements on Sunday. It will be Ashton’s first start in the Six Nations since 2013.

Dan Cole, Joe Launchbury and Ben Moon are included on the bench for the first time this tournament.
