With their World Cup opener just four weeks away, England desperately need to regain their mojo and after three consecutive losses, the pressure is on them to snap that streak and try build some confidence.

Steve Borthwick has selected a strong core group from title-winning Saracens and he will be hoping that cohesion involving captain Owen Farrell, Elliot Daly and Billy Vunipola will help his team get a positive result here.


After beating England 20-9 last week, Wales boss Warren Gatland has made wholesale changes for this game and he has named an entirely different 15 from that win.

As well as changes personnel, he has handed the captaincy to Dewi Lake in the absence of Jac Morgan and the Ospreys man will be fired up to lead his team against England.


England: Steward; Arundell, Marchant, Lawrence, Daly; Farrell (c), Van Poortvliet; Marler, George, Stuart, Itoje, Martin, Lawes, Earl, B Vunipola.

Replacements: Dan, Genge, Cole, Hill, Willis, Youngs, Ford, Malins

Wales: L Williams; Adams, Roberts, Tompkins, Rogers; O Williams, T Williams; G Thomas, Lake (c), Francis, Beard, R Davies, Lydiate, Reffell, Plumtree.

Replacements: Parry, Mathias, Lewis, Tshiunza, Basham, Hardy, Biggar, K Williams.


While there is nothing riding on this game, the pressure is on both teams to put in a strong performance. Neither team approach the World Cup in particularly good shape but the pressure will certainly be on England and Steve Borthwick. Defeat here could see them drop to ninth in the world rankings and that is a clear sign of the growing malaise around the team. With Borthwick naming a strong team, unlike Gatland who has the luxury of rotating after winning last week, expect England to labour to a much-needed victory.
