England V Ireland: Choose Combined XV From Starting Teams

during the NatWest Six Nations match between England and Ireland at Twickenham Stadium on March 17, 2018 in London, England.

Ireland travel to Twickenham on Saturday for the second of their World Cup warm-up games and Joe Schmidt has named an exciting, experimental side for the clash.

Ross Byrne is named at fly-half alongside the experienced Conor Murray while Jean Kleyn is once again named in the second row alongside Iain Henderson.

There’s a wealth of experience running throughout with the Ireland backline of Jordan Larmour, Rob Kearney and Jacob Stockdale while Cian Healy, Rory Best and Tadhg Furlong make up the front row.

Meanwhile, Eddie Jones has also named a strong team for the clash with captain Owen Farrell, Manu Tuilagi and Ben Youngs make their first starts of the summer. There is also plenty of experience on the England bench with Courtney Lawes, Dan Cole and Mako Vunipola all named among the replacements as is Willi Heinz.

Ahead of the 3pm kick-off on Saturday, we are asking you to choose your best combined XV from both starting line-ups in the poll below.
