Andy Goode picks his England team to take on Ireland in Six Nations finale
Rugby legend Andy Goode has called for Eddie Jones to make four changes to his England starting line-up ahead of their Six Nations clash with Ireland at Twickenham on Saturday.
The 37-year-old, who won 17 England caps between 2005 and 2009, has opted to make wholesale changes, bringing in six players for the St Patricks day clash.
In the forwards, he’s opted to bring in Kyle Sinckler for Dan Cole while in the back-row he’s gone with a brand new trio of Don Armand, James Haskell and Sam Simmonds.
He’s dropped George Ford, moving Owen Farrell to fly-half with Henry Slade coming into partner Ben Te’o, who moves to No.12.
In the back three, he’s stuck with Anthony Watson at fullback but has dropped Jonny May in favour of in-form Sale speedster Denny Solomona.
