Leaked England XV reveals Lawes and Tuilagi fit and return

Courtney Lawes is set to be among six changes to the England side to face Wales next weekend after taking a full part in training on Friday morning.

The 32-year-old, who captained England to victories over Tonga and South Africa last November, missed the first two rounds of this season’s Six Nations because of concussion.

Speaking to media on Tuesday, attack coach Martin Gleeson said centre Tuilagi and lock/flanker Lawes – both key performers for Eddie Jones’ side – have recovered from hamstring and concussions concerns respectively to return to full training.

England face Wales at Twickenham in Round 3 of the Six Nations on Saturday in a must-win clash, with both nations having lost one and won one in the championship this year so far.

Check out the full predicted XV below.
