Eddie Jones announces England squad for Autumn Nations Cup opener

SECOND-ROW

4. Maro Itoje, 5. Joe Launchbury

BACK-ROW

6. Jack Willis, 7. Tom Curry, 8. Billy Vunipola

“Tom Curry and Sam Underhill are both world-class players but England are kicking far too much and not playing with the width and pace that justifies two tearaway sevens. The back row would be better balanced with the introduction of a strong ball carrier at 6 who would also offer a bigger lineout presence.”
