Sinckler returns for Italy clash, Earl and Malins on bench

Kyle Sinckler returns to the England starting line-up for England's Six Nations clash with Italy at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday, February 13th (2.15pm KO). 

Ben Earl and Max Malins are named among the replacements as England look to bounce back from the round one defeat to Scotland.

Head Coach, Eddie Jones said: “As always, we’ve picked what we think is our strongest 23 to try and win the game.

“We’re pleased to have Mako and Kyle back into the team and we’ve made some changes to our starting XV, but our finishers are just as important to our game plan. We look at the whole 80 minutes. 

“We’ve trained very well this week, I’ve been very pleased with the players’ attitudes and work-rate. We’re hoping to put on a good performance on Saturday and kick on with our Guinness Six Nations campaign.”

England v Italy is live on ITV 1 and BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra.
