DUBLIN (AP) – England will face Ireland in the Six Nations tomorrow at Lansdowne Road with only one change to the line-up which beat France 23-20 last weekend.
Elliot Daly, dropped from fullback into the reserves against France, will start at centre for Henry Slade, who injured a calf in training on Monday.
Daly at center was a surprise, ahead of specialists Ollie Lawrence, who is in the reserves, and the unused and uncapped Paolo Odogwu. Daly made his name at centre for his former club Wasps, but England coach Eddie Jones has played him there only once, preferring him at fullback or wing.
Joe Marchant, with four caps, came into the reserves on Thursday as backline cover.
England and Ireland are fighting to finish second in the tournament after two losses each.
“This is our most important game of the tournament and we want to finish well,” Jones said in a statement.
