Who has Eddie Jones selected for the four matches in November and December?

England Autumn Nations Cup Squad 2020

After winning a third Six Nations title in five years, Eddie Jones’s England have now switched focus to the Autumn Nations Cup, which runs from 13 November to 6 December.

England play Georgia and Ireland at home before travelling to Parc y Scarlets to face Wales in the pool stages. They will then play a final match against the team in the other group – one of Fiji, France, Italy or Scotland – that is ranked in the same position in their pool table.

After beating Georgia 40-0 in the opening game, Eddie Jones has made four personnel changes to his starting XV for the visit of Ireland – all in the pack.

Mako Vunipola and Kyle Sinckler are the starting props while Tom Curry and Sam Underhill come onto the flanks. In a positional change, Maro Itoje moves back to the second row from blindside.

Jones said: “I’ve picked the strongest team possible for the most important game of our season.”
