Squad Update: Eddie Jones adds three players to his matchday squad as reserves

England head coach Eddie Jones has revealed prop Alec Hepburn, lock George Kruis and winger Denny Solomona will head to Paris as travelling reserves.

It was also confirmed that skipper Dylan Hartley will also travel with the squad.



Injury means Hartley misses the game, so Jamie George will replace him at hooker in what is an otherwise unchanged starting forward pack to the one that faced Scotland last month.

Owen Farrell therefore will captain the team with Mako Vunipola named as vice-captain.
