team news

Steve Borthwick makes sweeping changes to the side beaten in Cardiff, with England’s line-up more akin to that they might use at the World Cup. Number eight Billy Vunipola is making his debut under Borthwick after recovering from injury, while Saracens team-mate Ben Earl is making his international debut in the back row. Owen Farrell captains a defensive line that includes the recovered Ollie Lawrence, while Elliot Daly and Henry Arundell should provide threats on the touchline.

Jonny Hill is on the bench despite missing World Cup 33. Neither Ollie Chessum (ankle) nor Dave Ribbans, who was sidelined last week with a head injury, feature in the matchday squad, while Ellis Genge is set to claim his 50th win on the lid.

Wales name a completely revamped side managed for the first time by hooker Dewi Lake. Warren Gatland makes his full-back debut for Joe Roberts in a line-up that is rebalancing youth and experience, with Tom Rogers making his first appearance on the wing in more than two years alongside Josh Adams, the 50th international .

At the front, Taine Plumtree is promoted to the number eight jersey and Rhys Davies is another first starter. Two other debutants lurk on the bench: Scarlets prop Kemsley Mathias and Ospreys center Kieran Williams.
