Team news

England have made just one change from the team that triumphed over France.

Elliot Daly, who was dropped at full-back for Max Malins last week, replaces the injured Henry Slade at outside centre.

Eddie Jones said of the change: "I know how much Elliot will be looking forward to playing 13.

"Obviously, it’s disappointing for Sladey who has been playing very well but I think Elliot comes in and will be looking to show what he can do from that position.

"He’s a powerful, quick athlete and will be looking to show that on Saturday.”
