Nowell to make England Twickenham bow

Cornwall’s Jack Nowell will make his England Twickenham debut against Ireland on Saturday after being named in the team this morning for the RBS Six Nations clash.

It will be the third successive cap for the 20-year-old winger from Newlyn, who plays for Exeter Chiefs, and has formerly played for Truro College, Redruth and the Cornish Pirates.

England hope to keep alive their hopes of the Championship and Triple Crown with victory against an Ireland side who have won both their opening games, including an impressive victory over Wales.

England have made two changes to their squad for the match,

Tight-head prop David Wilson (Bath Rugby, right) replaces Dan Cole (Leicester Tigers), who will require three months rest from rugby before further assessment on his neck, while the uncapped George Ford (Bath Rugby) comes on to the replacements’ bench for Brad Barritt.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “We are excited about being back at our home after two games on the road. The Twickenham crowd during the November internationals was superb and I’m sure it’ll be the same again on Saturday.

“We have been forced into one change and we wish Dan Cole all the best for his recovery. However, David Wilson is an experienced international with 31 caps and he showed in his three starts against Argentina last year what he can do.

“It's great to have George involved. He has settled in well and we are confident in his ability should he get his opportunity from the bench."
