- Coach wants England to atone for Scotland loss against Italy
- Six starters who lost Calcutta Cup game have been dropped
Eddie Jones has challenged England to atone for their Calcutta Cup capitulation by channelling Muhammad Ali and leaving Italy on the canvas on Sunday.
Jones has made some of the most exciting team selections of his tenure, handing starts to Harry Randall and Alex Dombrandt and omitting six of the starters who lost to Scotland. With Marcus Smith continuing at fly-half Jones believes he and Dombrandt can reproduce their formidable double act at Harlequins with the head coach urging England to “light up Rome”.
