10,000 fans pick interesting England XV for 2021 Six Nations

England fans have been voting for the XV they’d like to see start their 2021 Six Nations opener – and it’s clear they want radical change after the underwhelming autumn.

Over 10,000 fans voted in a poll to make the youthful selection, although it’s unlikely that head coach Eddie Jones will make this amount of change.

Supporters pointed to Premiership form when picking the XV, that saw the likes of Owen Farrell, Jamie George and Sam Underhill missing out.

The men in white kick off their 2021 campaign at home to Scotland on the 6th February before further home matches against Italy and France along with tough trips to Wales and Ireland.

Take a look at the team selected by fans below.
