England may well look to ring the changes following their disappointing loss to Scotland at Murrayfield in the Six Nations.

That process could well involve a recall for Marcus Smith, absent from the tournament thus far with a claf problem. Steve Borthwick has also given a spoitive update on the fitness of scrum-half Alex Mitchell, who could return for the final game against France.

Ollie Lawrence and Danny Care returned to England’s starting XV for the Calcutta Cup clash.

Who is England captain?

In the absence of Owen Farrell, Borthwick has experienced hooker Jamie George as his captain for the Six Nations.

“When I asked Jamie to be captain for this forthcoming series, I could sense his excitement and pride at being asked to lead his country. I am delighted that he has accepted the role,” Borthwick said.

“Jamie has been a respected leader in this group for a number of years now. With 85 England caps to his name, he is a quietly influential character who has an excellent tactical understanding and who sets high standards, whilst building strong relationships with the people around him.

George, who has 85 international caps to his name, added: “I love playing rugby for England. I hope that everyone has seen how much it means to me, I have never shied away from that. I am so excited about where this team can go and bringing the fans on that journey with us is something that I care about deeply.”
