England men’s head coach Eddie Jones has recalled 33 players to begin preparations for the next Guinness Six Nations match.
Mako Vunipola is not included as he has travelled back to Tonga for family reasons.
There’s only one player that fans want to replace Vunipola in England’s starting XV for their clash against Ireland.
Ellis Genge is amazing. I’d say he should start next week, but frankly he’s much better as an impact player. Mobile, fast, strong, great carrier, great scrummager; he’s got it all. Surely he’s got to be at least ahead of Marler in the pecking order now. https://t.co/2q9GSgECUp— Dr. Ypsilon (@Yxllop) February 9, 2020
Genge has to start… love the runs he makes, love his energy… very dynamic prop… all good!— Paul Calver (@PMCalver) February 9, 2020
“In terms of Genge, I thought his performance off the bench was world class. The biggest improvement is set-piece. As time goes on, I think he’ll be trusted as a starter.” @AlexCorbs has backed fellow prop @EllisGenge to start in the England XV.https://t.co/3yw4j8w3tz— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 11, 2020
