Eddie Jones set to name bold England XV to face Scotland

England head coach is set to name a bold England XV to face Scotland in their Six Nations opener on Saturday.

The Aussie will name his England team to play Scotland at 11:30 this morning.

According to reports, Wasps flanker Jack Willis and Worcester Warriors centre Ollie Lawrence or both in line to start at Twickenham.

If Lawrence does get the nod, he could find himself going head-to-head with former England U20 centre partner Cameron Redpath, who recently pledged his allegiance to Scotland.

Props Ellis Genge and Will Stuart are the favourites to start with Mako Vunipola currently injured and Kyle Sinckler suspended after his outburst at a referee.

 Lions head coach Warren Gatland will be in attendance at Twickenham as begins his scouting mission ahead of the 2021 Lions tour.

According to the odds, a number of England and Scotland stars will head to South Africa this summer.

England XV to face Scotland (possible):

Elliot Daly; Anthony Watson, Ollie Lawrence, Henry Slade, Jonny May; Owen Farrell, Ben Youngs; Ellis Genge, Jamie George, Will Stuart; Maro Itoje, Jonny Hill; Tom Curry, Billy Vunipola, Jack Willis.

Speaking to the BBC in November 2019, Warren Gatland was asked by Ugo Monye to name five certainties for his Lions XV to face South Africa in 2021.

One year on, let’s look at who he picked:

1. Jamie George

Position: Hooker

Age: 30

How’s he doing? George has continued to star for England and is 1/20 to make the 2021 squad. Almost the first name on the team sheet right now following his hat-trick against Georgia.

DID YOU KNOW? He is an Aston Villa fan with his current favourite player being Jack Grealish.
