‘Leaked’ England XV suggests Eddie Jones will make minimal changes

The England XV has been reportedly leaked ahead of Sunday’s Six Nations clash with Italy in Rome.

Jones, who is set to name his side tomorrow morning, has urged his side to execute better, as England look to bounce back against Italy on Sunday.

England need to win in Rome to rejuvenate their Guinness Six Nations championship campaign, and the head coach is confident his side is up to the task.

“I want the right attitude from the players; to have the courage to play like new England and execute, that’s what we want to see right from the word go,” said Jones. “I’m sure we’re going to execute better against Italy.”

“You can see there has been some really good experience in the Italian side; they’ve got some good players in Garbisi who at 10 has been good enough to keep the World Cup winning standoff Pollard out of the lineup at Montpellier,” added Jones. 

“The flanker Lamaro really impressed me for his toughness and obviously Negri brings something a little bit different at six.

“They’ve got a very good spirited team and at home they’ll be wanting to impress the home crowd so it’s going to be a tough old game.”
