CHISELDON’S Jonny May will start on the wing this Saturday as England stage their final push for the 2020 Guinness Six Nations title against Italy.

Eddie Jones’ men travel to the Stadio Olimpico in Rome knowing that a bonus-point win, combined with a France victory over Ireland, will see them crowned champions.

Fellow Wiltshireman, Tomm Dunn looks set to make his debut from the bench while England have given a debut to Exeter lock Jonny Hill.

Hill packs down alongside Maro Itoje in the second row after an influential season at the Chiefs, who completed the double, with the 26-year-old providing a physical presence and set-piece expertise.

Apart from Hill’s debut and George Furbank deputising for shin injury victim Elliot Daly at full-back, Jones has largely stuck to his tried and tested players in the starting XV.

It is a different story on the bench, however, with uncapped trio Dunn, Ollie Lawrence and Ollie Thorley selected.

Dunn will provide cover for hooker Jamie George, Lawrence is a powerful centre with good feet and Thorley operates as a tackle-busting wing.

George wins his 50th cap and he will lead out the side alongside Lions team-mate Ben Youngs, who will become only the second player to reach the milestone of 100 England appearances.

Owen Farrell reverts to fly-half for the first time since the World Cup to form a new-look midfield alongside Henry Slade and Jonathan Joseph.

England are playing their first match since lockdown following a seven-month interruption to the Six Nations caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and the cancellation of last week’s scheduled Barbarians Test.

“We’ve trained with good intensity this week and the squad are excited by the challenge of performing at our best against Italy,” Jones said.

“The team have prepared well and are looking forward to putting on an England shirt and showing what they can do.

“We will also celebrate two major achievements in Ben Youngs and Jamie George’s cap milestones.

“It’s testimony to their skill, hard work and love of playing for England, and there is more to come from both of them.”
