Jack leads England in search of third win


Head Coach Alan Dickens said: “I’m happy with the team’s preparation for this game. There were areas where we knew we could still improve from the Scotland game and we worked on that in training this week.

“A Six Nations campaign is really a team effort so we made a few changes on Matchday 26 for this game.

“There is a lot of competition within the squad which is exactly what we want as the players push each other to be better in every session.

“We will face a strong Irish side which also started with two wins, so we know how difficult it will be.”

Teams are allowed to nominate a 26-player squad for each match in this year’s competition due to Covid-19 regulations. Eight of the 11 substitutes named in a team may be used during the match.

Kick-off on Thursday is at 8:00 p.m. with live coverage on EnglandRugby.com, England Rugby Facebook, Six Nations Rugby YouTube channel and S4C Clic.
