England team to play France: Autumn Nations Cup final

Eddie Jones has named the England team to play France in the Autumn Nations Cup final.

In the only change to the team that beat Wales at Parc y Scarlets last weekend, Anthony Watson comes in at right wing.  Jonny May continues at left wing and Elliot Daly is at full back.

Captain Owen Farrell stays at inside centre and Henry Slade at outside centre, while George Ford is at fly half and Ben Youngs at scrum half.

England’s unchanged forward pack sees Mako Vunipola (loose-head prop), Kyle Sinckler (tight-head prop) and Jamie George (hooker) at the front row.  The tight five is completed with Maro Itoje and Joe Launchbury. Tom Curry (blindside) and Sam Underhill (openside) continue as flankers and Billy Vunipola, making his 50th start for England, is at No. 8.
