Five Saracens to face Ireland in Six Nations finale
Head Coach Steve Borthwick has selected five Saracens to take on Ireland in England's final match of the Guinness Six Nations.
Owen Farrell returns to the starting line-up to captain the side, and he is alongside Jamie George and Maro Itoje in the XV.
Mako Vunipola and Nick Isiekwe are both on the bench for the trip to the Aviva Stadium.
Elsewhere this weekend, Marco Riccioni is starting for Italy against Scotland, and Nick Tompkins is back in the Welsh side who take on France in Paris.
Borthwick said: “We travel to Dublin to face an Ireland team on Saturday that has the chance to secure a Grand Slam Championship victory at home for the first time.
“We know that after the bitter disappointment of the display against an exceptional France team last week, we will have to be much improved to meet the challenge of playing the side presently ranked number one in the world.
“However, I have witnessed an England squad determined to make amends for the defeat at Twickenham, and I am confident that the team announced today will once again want to show the sort of resilience and attitude that brought us victory in Wales.”
See them all back in Saracens shirts a week on Saturday for The Showdown 3 in Association with City Index when we take on Harlequins at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!
