9:25am Wednesday 19th February 2014 in Sport
FORMER Wootton Bassett three-quarter Jonny May is expected to be named in the England starting XV for the third consecutive match when the national team is revealed tomorrow.
May, who made his debut for his country in Argentina over the summer, has started both of England’s two Six Nations outings to date - against France in Paris and Scotland at Murrayfield - and he will keep his place for the visit of Ireland on Saturday.
The Gloucester flyer, who was educated at the Ridgeway School, will once again be named on the wing by head coach Stuart Lancaster and goes into the game in search of his first international points.
Lancaster is scheduled to formally unveil his latest side at a press conference at 9.30am tomorrow morning.
