Exeter Chiefs star to win first England cap this weekend against Argentina

Back row-forward Sam Simmonds is in line for his debut as a finisher, replacing Tom Curry who injured himself in training on Thursday.

Eddie Jones said: “As a squad we have been preparing for this game since our first camp in August and are excited about playing in front of 82,000 fans at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday.”

“This is our best 23 selected in what is our most important game this year. We know that Argentina is a strong team – Rugby World Cup semi finalists in 2015 – and we will have to be smart and play well to beat them.”
