VOTE: Who makes your England vs Ireland combined team?

Vote for your combined England-Ireland XV ahead of Saturday’s Test at Twickenham.

England have recalled centre Manu Tuilagi and flanker Sam Underhill to the starting line-up for the latest Quilter International following last Saturday’s 13-6 defeat to Wales in Cardiff.

Owen Farrell will start against Ireland at inside centre, while winger Jonny May makes his first appearance of the summer series, while loosehead prop Mako Vunipola has returned to the bench after his hamstring injury.

With Johnny Sexton missing out on the World Cup warm-up clash, Ross Byrne will start at fly-half for the visitors and has a big chance to state his case selection, with Joey Carbery’s ankle ligament problem threatening to rule him out of the tournament in Japan.

Jean Kleyn wins his second cap at lock, the South Africa-born Munster star handed another chance to prove his World Cup worth.
