Sinckler and Malins to start in Dublin

Kyle Sinckler and Max Malins retain their starting spots for England's trip to Dublin to play Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, March 20th (4.45pm KO).

Eddie Jones has selected a largely unchanged 23 from the side that beat France 23-20 in a closely contested game at Twickenham last weekend, with Ben Earl once again named among the replacements.
 
Elliot Daly comes in at outside centre, with Henry Slade out due to a calf injury. Owen Farrell captains the side at inside centre, George Ford is at fly half and Ben Youngs at scrum half.
 
Max Malins stays at full back with Anthony Watson (right) and Jonny May (left) on the wings.

Props Mako Vunipola and Kyle Sinckler join hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie in the front row.  Charlie Ewels and Maro Itoje make up the tight five.
 
Mark Wilson is blind-side flanker, Tom Curry stays as open-side flanker and Billy Vunipola is No. 8.
 
Joe Marchant has been called-up to the 28-player squad.  He is named as finisher alongside Jamie George, Ellis Genge, Will Stuart, Jonny Hill, Ben Earl, Dan Robson and Ollie Lawrence.
 
Eddie Jones said: “This is our most important game of the tournament and we want to finish well. We’re anticipating a hard, tough game against Ireland and we’ve picked this team to cope with that.

“We want to take it to Ireland physically and play the rugby we want to play.”
 
Ireland v England is live on ITV 1 and BBC Radio 5 Live.
