Wing Chris Ashton will earn his first Six Nations start in six years when England host France at Twickenham on Saturday.
England’s stunning 32-20 upset victory over Ireland in Dublin came at a cost, as they lost star lock Maro Itoje to injury. Itoje’s spot is taken by Courtney Lawes and Joe Launchbury will provide cover from the bench.
In the backline, Ashton comes on to the right wing, with Jonny May moving to the left wing in place of Jack Nowell, who is benched.
Ben Moon and Dan Cole will serve as back-up props this week at the expense of Ellis Genge and Harry Williams.
England – 15 Elliot Daly, 14 Chris Ashton, 13 Henry Slade, 12 Manu Tuiagi, 11 Jonny May, 10 Owen Farrell (c), 9 Ben Youngs, 8 Billy Vunipola, 7 Tom Curry, 6 Mark Wilson, 5 George Kruis, 4 Courtney Lawes, 3 Kyle Sinckler, 2 Jamie George, 1 Mako Vunipola.
Subs: 16 Luke Cowan-Dickie, 17 Ben Moon, 18 Dan Cole, 19 Joe Launchbury, 20 Nathan Hughes, 21 Dan Robson, 22 George Ford, 23 Jack Nowell.
