Jack Nowell's amazing season at Chiefs has been rewarded with a place in the England match day squad to face Ireland on Sunday. He replaces an unlucky Jonny May, who in many people's eyes, hasn't had the best start to the 6 Nations Championship. Alex Goode, who has also had a great season for his Club, makes his first test start for 2 years.

England's squad looks strong but will it be enough to beat the impressive Irish in their own back yard just like they did 2 years ago? Fingers crossed history will repeat itself!
