England Team Announcement 29/10

After the original squad announcement came into criticism earlier this week with notable omissions such as Joe & Sam Simmonds, Ben Spencer and Marcus Smith, Eddie Jones has now named his side to face Italy in the final round of this years Guinness Six Nations. Some interesting decisions include Jonny Hill getting a well deserved starting spot at no.5, George Furbank getting another crack at 15 (needs a huge performance) and no replacement 10. I think Willis could feel hard done by, but Earl does offer an attacking option off of the bunch should England find themselves in trouble for points difference.
