Genge and Sinckler to start against Argentina

Ellis Genge and Kyle Sinckler will take on Los Pumas at Twickenham Stadium in England's opening Autumn Nations Series game on Sunday, November 6th (2.15pm KO).

Owen Farrell will captain the side at inside centre.  Manu Tuilagi returns at outside centre, Marcus Smith is at fly half and Ben Youngs is scrum half.
 
Vice-captain Jack Nowell is on the right wing, Joe Cokanasiga is on the left wing and Freddie Steward is full back.
 
There is an England debut for Alex Coles at lock, with Jonny Hill alongside.  Vice-captain Ellis Genge (loose-head prop) and Kyle Sinckler (tight-head prop) join hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie in the front row.
 
Maro Itoje and Tom Curry are named as flankers and Billy Vunipola is No. 8.
 
David Ribbans is also in line to make his England debut after being named as a finisher, alongside Jack Singleton who could make his first England appearance since 2019.
 
Mako Vunipola, Joe Heyes, Sam Simmonds, Jack Willis, Jack van Poortvliet and Henry Slade complete the 23.
 
Eddie Jones said: “It’s been a really good week of preparation and I’ve been very pleased with the squad’s attitude.
 
“They’ve shown real work ethic and a determination to improve and our leaders, Owen, Ellis and Jack have really lifted the team.
 
“We’re looking forward to a great game of rugby at a full Twickenham Stadium against a very good Argentina side.  It’s been a tough time for rugby lately and we hope that these autumn games show just what a special game it is.”
 
Very limited tickets are still available via www.EnglandRugby.com/Tickets.  The match is also live on Amazon Prime Sport and TalkSport.
