England v Wales: Choose Combined XV From Starting Teams

England Wales

Wales travel to Twickenham this weekend to face England in the hope of getting their Six Nations campaign back on track following two losses on the bounce. 

At the opposite end of the scale, England will bound into the clash with momentum after their comprehensive victory over Andy Farrell’s Ireland kept their hopes of a championship win alive.

Eddie Jones’ side have also been handed a major boost with the inclusion of Mark Wilson and Anthony Watson in the starting XV. Watson is named alongside Jonny May as the wingers with Elliot Daly at fullback while Wilson is selected at openside with Courtney Lawes at six and Tom Curry at number eight.
