Leaked England XV to play Ireland includes Sam Simmonds

Sam Simmonds is in line to start according to the leaked England XV from the Mail Online and Telegraph.

Defeat against Ireland at Twickenham on Saturday will end any chance of Eddie Jones side winning the tournament.

When it comes to playing for England at Twickenham, Joe Marler is quite clear.

“I dont think I have ever felt like an underdog,” said the prop.

“I know how good Ireland are, I know how good their tight heads are, I know how good their pack is, I know how good their attacking system is, so we have to be right on the money in order to get the win, and it helps that we are at home with a Twickenham crowd,

“They have guys in the pack like Tadgh Beirne, Tadgh Furlong and Caelan Doris who are key men and now stepping up to the plate. These boys are legitimate ball players.”
