TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: England head coach Eddie Jones has made two changes to the starting line-up that beat Italy 46-15 for their clash against Wales at Twickenham on Saturday.

Danny Care starts at scrumhalf and will become England's most capped No.9 (78), moving past 2003 Rugby World Cup winner Matt Dawson.
 
Jonathan Joseph comes in for Ben Te'o at outside centre.  
 
Following an injury to Ben Youngs, Richard Wigglesworth has been named as a replacement. The 34-year-old Saracens scrumhalf last played for England in 2015.

"The team is hugely excited about playing in front of 82 000 fans at Twickenham and we'll be well prepared and ready to go out there and beat Wales on Saturday.
 
"We want to make sure our set piece is dominant, our defence is ferocious and that we are at our best against Wales this weekend."

Jones added: "Danny Care very much deserves the honour of being the most capped England scrumhalf and I am sure he'll make the most of his opportunity on Saturday."
