Follow the latest updates live from England team announcement as Eddie Jones names his side to face Italy in this Saturday’s Six Nations decider.

In a game that has been on hold for more than seven months, England finally get the chance to try and clinch the Six Nations title in what would be a third championship success under Jones in five years. However, both France and Ireland also have hopes of claiming top honours, with the two sides set to meet in Paris immediately after England’s encounter in Rome.

Jones is set to name his side this morning in what will be a very different look to the side that played the last Six nations game back in March, with Joe Marler, George Kruis, Courtney Lawes, Mark Wilson, George Ford, Manu Tuilagi and Elliot Daly all unavailable this weekend.
