Here’s The England Team To Take On Wales At Twickenham On Saturday

With both England and Wales recording opening round wins against Italy and Scotland, respectively, Saturday’s Twickenham clash between these two rivals has the making of something special. 

Warren Gatland has already announced his team for that match and it contains no changes to the one which powered past Gregor Townsend’s side with ease.

Eddie Jones, however, has made two changes to the side which romped home against the Italians in Rome. Danny Care comes in for the injured Ben Youngs while Jonathan Joseph comes in for Ben Te’o who takes his place on the bench.

Care will become England’s most-capped scrum-half (78) when he takes to the field on Saturday, overtaking 2003 World Cup winner, Matt Dawson.

Here is the team in full:

England head coach Eddie Jones said:  “The team is hugely excited about playing in front of 82,000 fans at Twickenham and we’ll be well prepared and ready to go out there and beat Wales on Saturday.

“We want to make sure our set piece is dominant, our defence is ferocious and that we are at our best against Wales this weekend.”

Jones added: “Danny Care very much deserves the honour of being the most capped England scrum half and I am sure he’ll make the most of his opportunity on Saturday.”
