Five Saracens named in England squad to play France
Owen Farrell and Mako Vunipola have been named captain and vice-captain respectively for England’s Six Nations clash against France in Paris.
Farrell will skipper Eddie Jones’ side from inside centre in the absence of hooker Dylan Hartley.
The Northampton Saints’ number two’s absence presents the chance for Jamie George to impress from the start and he is joined in the pack by Maro Itoje.
Richard Wigglesworth is selected as a finisher.
Congratulations and good luck to all five!
England: Watson, May, Te'o, Farrell, Daly, Ford, Care; Vunipola, George, Cole, Launchbury, Itoje, Lawes, Robshaw, Hughes.
Finishers: Cowan-Dickie, Marler, Sinckler, Haskell, Simmonds, Wigglesworth, Joseph, Brown.
