England Team To Play Ireland: Eddie Jones Unleashes Maro Itoje For Ireland Clash

England Team To Play Ireland: Eddie Jones Unleashes Maro Itoje For Ireland Clash

Maro Itoje is the latest player that is garnering all the attention in the English media - but unlike Sam Burgess - the Saracens forward is worthy of the hype.

The Junior World Cup winning captain is the big new name in an otherwise settled England team, with the other exciting new name- Elliot Daly - having to be content with a place on the bench.

It will be Itoje's first start for his country, after making his debut off the bench against Italy. Ben Youngs gets the nod ahead of Care at scrumhalf, and Jones is continuing with the Ford and Farrell combination at 10 and 12.

England name 12 of the same XV that were beaten by Ireland in the Aviva stadium last year, with Farrell, Itoje, and Brown the players coming in to that team.
