England will look to avenge their humbling 20-9 defeat to Wales last weekend as the two teams take on one another again in a rematch at Twickenham.


Steve Borthwick's side failed to score a try in the match and will be more keen to lay down a statement win after announcing the squad for the World Cup on Monday.

Borthwick made a few surprise calls, the most shocking being the exclusion of Exeter's Henry Slade, who had played in the Six Nations.

Slade has said on social media he is "gutted" to miss out on a spot and head coach Borthwick has spoken about his decision.

"Henry has been excellent throughout the training camp," Borthwick said. "He is clearly disappointed. The message to the players that have not been selected is to be ready to come into the squad. We know that there will be changes.

"The last World Cup shows that with bumps and bruises, the average is nearly two players a squad in the last number of tournaments (are changed), so what I have asked every player who hasn’t been selected is to be ready to go."

Wales, meanwhile, will look to follow up a good win with another - but coach Warren Gatland has rung the changes for their outing at the home of English rugby.

He has named a completely new starting XV with Dewi Lake skippering the side and Joe Roberts winning his first cap at centre.

Josh Adams will also win his 50th cap on the wing, while Kemsley Mathias and Keiran Williams could make their debuts from the bench.
