Elliot Daly is back in the England team for Saturday's Six Nations meeting with Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.

England head coach Eddie Jones has made just one change from last weekend's win over France with Elliot replacing the injured Henry Slade in the centre.

Owen Farrell captains the side at inside centre, George Ford is at outhalf and Ben Youngs at scrum-half.

Max Malins stays at full-back with Anthony Watson and Jonny May on the wings.

Props Mako Vunipola and Kyle Sinckler join hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie in the front row.

Charlie Ewels and Maro Itoje make up the tight five.

Mark Wilson is blind-side flanker, Tom Curry stays as open-side flanker and Billy Vunipola is No. 8.

Eddie Jones said: "This is our most important game of the tournament and we want to finish well.

"We’re anticipating a hard, tough game against Ireland and we’ve picked this team to cope with that.

"We want to take it to Ireland physically and play the rugby we want to play."

England can no longer retain the title but could finish second if they win in Dublin.
