Tom Curry starts for England as one of four changes for their Test with Ireland

England head coach Eddie Jones has made four changes to his side to face Ireland at Twickenham on Saturday in the Autumn Nations Cup, with flankers Tom Curry and Sam Underhill returning. 

Sale Sharks flanker Curry and Bath back-row Underhill were key components to the England side which progressed to the Rugby World Cup final in Japan last year.

Otherwise, Jones has promoted first-choice props Mako Vunipola and Kyle Sinckler back into the starting XV, with Ellis Genge and Will Stuart dropping to the bench.

The back-line remains unchanged from England’s 40-0 win over Georgia last time out, while out-half George Ford has returned from injury to take his place among the replacements.

More to follow…

England: 15 Elliot Daly, 14 Jonathan Joseph, 13 Ollie Lawrence, 12 Henry Slade, 11 Jonny May, 10 Owen Farrell (c), 9 Ben Youngs; 1 Mako Vunipola, 2 Jamie George, 3 Kyle Sinckler, 4 Maro Itoje, 5 Joe Launchbury, 6 Tom Curry, 7 Sam Underhill, 8 Billy Vunipola

Replacements: 16 Tom Dunn, 17 Ellis Genge, 18 Will Stuart, 19 Jonny Hill, 20 Ben Earl, 21 Dan Robson, 22 George Ford, 23 Max Malins.
