England boss Eddie Jones to make one change for Wales clash

England head coach Eddie Jones will reportedly make just one change to his much-criticised England XV.

The men in white, who lost to Scotland on the opening weekend at Twickenham before beating Italy, have been beaten on seven of their past 10 trips to the Principality Stadium.

However, the only change Eddie Jones was considering last night was a recall for hooker Jamie George in place of Luke Cowan-Dickie, according to the Mail Online.

That means Saracens trio Elliot Daly, Owen Farrell and Billy Vunipola are set to keep their places in his starting team, despite concerns over their recent form.

The only other change to the matchday 23 will see uncapped Leicester Tigers forward George Martin likely named among the replacements in place of the injured Jack Willis.

Elliot Daly; Anthony Watson, Henry Slade, Owen Farrell (c), Jonny May, George Ford, Ben Youngs; Mako Vunipola, Jamie George, Kyle Sinckler, Maro Itoje, Jonny Hill, Courtney Lawes, Billy Vunipola, Tom Curry.

LIST: 5 players who want to swap nations for 2023 World Cup

In an interview with the Daily Mail’s Nik Simon, the Northampton Saints winger international winger said he would ‘100 perc cent’ play for Fiji.

I’m 28 and I’ve still got the best years ahead of me, so the opportunity to play for Fiji would be a dream come true,’ he told Sportsmail.

‘I have no regrets about playing for Australia. I was pretty young at the time when the opportunity came along and I went for it.

‘But Fiji has always been in my heart. It’s where I was born. When I left Fiji for Australia, my dream was to play for Fiji. I would 100 per cent commit to Fiji if that opportunity came along.’
