England Team Named For Six Nations Battle With France

England Team Named For Six Nations Battle With France

"We can't wait to play in front of our supporters", he added. "You think you're going to have long years at it, but that wasn't the case for me".

Ashton's last Six Nations outing was one of the low points in English rugby history - a crushing 30-3 defeat by Wales in Cardiff that destroyed the team's Grand Slam hopes at the final hurdle.

"[That was] One to forget as well", Ashton said.

How can I watch it?

England have won nine of the last 12 Six Nations games against France, with Les Bleus' last win over the Red Rose at Twickenham an 18-17 success back in 2005.

Always a prolific try-scorer at club level, Ashton spent a season as an exile in France with Toulon, and during that time, last February, he was a pitchside pundit for the BBC, wearing a suit and tie at a match in Marseilles.

"We think he might sneak us a try early in the game", coach Eddie Jones said of Ashton.

"After the Ireland game we have had to refocus and reset", Jones said.

"Jack was absolutely outstanding for us last week, so it's just a different role for him", he said.

It is an autobiographical song by Yorlets, Ferguson said, who started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Yorlets's family. He still had a faint pulse, according to the police spokesperson, and was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

"He's got a great work-rate and can fill a number of positions".

Courtney Lawes steps up to start in place of the injured Maro itoje, who Jones claimed yesterday now has a chance of being fit to face Wales in a fortnight. "He's got a good awareness of opportunities. I've got no doubt we are going to be better".

This could well just be a platitude that all managers will say after a good performance, although they don't really mean it. Everyone is good at stuff. "Everyone wants to start, but in the past few years the finishers have had a big impact for us".

"It is unfortunate Maro is injured but he has been rehabbing well so we are hopeful he will be back earlier than maybe first predicted". 'He was nearly available for selection this week. Itoje's spot is taken by Courtney Lawes and Joe Launchbury will provide cover from the bench.

Props Dan Cole and Ben Moon as well as second row Joe Launchbury are named among the replacements along with Nowell.

Winger Joe Cokanasiga and flanker Brad Shields were the men trimmed from Jones's provisional squad.

The rugby league convert has had to sit and watch five consecutive Six Nations tournaments since his last championship appearance - admittedly not one he wants to remember - and despite finding his feet in France by breaking the Top 14 record for most tries in a single season with his 24 in 23 matches, the carrot was dangled to return with Sale Sharks and reignite his worldwide career.

"They rely a lot on individual talents", Jones said.
