England And Wales Name Their Sides For World Cup Clash

england rfuEngland have made three changes to their starting line-up for Saturday’s World Cup game with Wales at Twickenham. Owen Farrell starts at fly-half, replacing George Ford, who drops to the bench. Rugby league convert Sam Burgess will form a centre partnership with Brad Barritt, as Jonathan Joseph hasn’t recovered from a chest problem. Number eight Billy Vunipola is in for the injured Ben Morgan, while James Haskell and full-back Alex Goode are among the replacements. Gareth Davies has been given the nod to start at scrum-half for Wales. Mike Phillips isn’t involved at all – with Lloyd Williams on the bench.
