England finalised their team for today’s Guinness Six Nations match against Wales by picking Elliot Daly at outside centre.


A rejig of the starting XV named on Thursday was needed after Manu Tuilagi suffered a hamstring strain in training, ruling him out of the Twickenham title showdown.

To plug the gap, Daly moved into the 13 jersey and Henry Slade switched to inside centre with Joe Marchant providing bench cover.
