Daly to start for England
England head coach Eddie Jones has named a strong starting line-up to face Argentina in their end-of-year Test at Twickenham tomorrow.
Seven players – Mike Brown, George Ford, Dylan Hartley, Nathan Hughes, Chris Robshaw, Henry Slade and Sam Underhill – who started in England’s last Test against Argentina in June retain their place this weekend. Elliot Daly has recovered from a knee injury and will start on the left wing after Jonny May did not recover in time from his hamstring injury.
Daly, who was initially expected to miss All England’s Autumn Tests, is joined by Dan Cole, Courtney Lawes, Mako Vunipola and Anthony Watson who all last played for England during the successful 2017 Six Nations campaign.
Jones said: “As a squad we have been preparing for this game since our first camp in August and are excited about playing in front of 82,000 fans at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday.”
“This is our best 23 selected in what is our most important game this year. We know that Argentina is a strong team – Rugby World Cup semi finalists in 2015 – and we will have to be smart and play well to beat them.”
