England’s Expected Matchday 23 For The Six Nations

England kit

With Stuart Lancaster having now confirmed his England squad for the Six Nations we look at which team is likely to take to the field in Cardiff;

Starters

1.Joe Marler

Marler is expected to retain his place after a series of solid appearances during the Autumn Internationals.

2.Dylan Hartley

With Rob Webber dropping to the Saxons it seems inevitable Hartley will once again start for England.

3.David Wilson

A lack of playing time for Dan Cole couples with Wilson’s good form mean he’s likely to be given a start once more.

4.Geoff Parling

Lancaster has always been an admirer of Parling and in the absence of Lawes and Launchbury will be key.

5.Dave Attwood

Attwood has been back up to England’s first choice second row for some time so will be given chance to step up.

6.Tom Wood

The expectation is that England will stick with their tried and tested back row which obviously includes Wood.

7.Chris Robshaw

As England captain Robshaw is pretty much the first name on the team sheet whenever fit so will start.

8.Billy Vunipola

With Ben Morgan injured it’s likely Vunipola will once again wear the England number 8 shirt in his absence.

9.Danny Care

With Ben Youngs failing to progress in his absence, it’s likely Care will take back the number nine shirt.

10.George Ford

Ford laid down a marker during the Autumn Internationals and is likely to be given another chance to perform.

11.Jonny May

May has been a regular on the England wing for some time now and will likely continue as such for the time being.

12.Luther Burrell

The reports are suggesting Burrell is likely to be given a chance during the Six Nations to prove his worth.

13.Brad Barritt

It is also widely believed Barritt will partner Burrell in the centres, although he could play inside of the Northampton man,

14.Jack Nowell

Nowell has returned to the squad instead of Marland Yarde and looks likely to regain his place on the wing.

15.Mike Brown

With Ben Foden out injured Brown is likely to continue as England’s full back throughout the Six Nations.

16.Tom Youngs

17.Alex Corbisiero

18.Dan Cole

19.George Kruis

20.James Haskell

21.Ben Youngs

22.Owen Farrell

23.Anthony Watson

Do you think this selection would be too conservative?
