England have switched it up and brought in a few new players in an attempt to bring a new attacking vibe to their team for the match against Wales tomorrow.
The line up changes include Farrell slotting into number 10 and Tuilangi coming into the centres to give England a new dimension in the midfield. Robshaw will also take over the armband and the captaincy role as Dowson will not start.
England will be hoping the tries suddenly emerge as they have only scored 2 in 2 games so far, both blocked kicks from flyhalf Hodgson which earn him the nickname Chargedown Charlie. But with Hodgson out with a finger injury sustained in midweek, it will be let to Farrell at 10 to instrument some attacking flair and get England over with a proper backs move as opposed to the scrappy tries and kicks they have gleaned so far.
The Welsh have flair and ability. North on the wing, Priestland is also a threat. However, their pack is slightly hit by injury. However, England’s defence has so far stood fairly firm and so it will be a good test for both sides to measure their strengths, and test their weaknesses.

Wales easily saw off Namibia for a simple win which leaves them on course to continue to the Quarter Finals of the Rugby World Cup.
The Welsh did not look troubled at any point in the game and easily collected their bonus point. In fact the Welsh scored 12 tries, with 9 Conversions and 1 Penalty. Scott Williams grabbed a hat trick and Stephen Jones converted 6 times.
In doing so, and in taking the one penalty, Jones surpassed the 900 point mark, a great moment for the most capped player in Wales’ Rugby history.
However, the man taking the plaudits was George North who became the Rugby World Cup’s youngest ever try scorer when he went over twice aged just 19 years and 166 days.
Despite being only 22-0 at the half time whistle, the final score was 81-7. This leaves Wales on equal points with Samoa with one game left to play, but the Welsh play Fiji but Samoa have to play South Africa. Wales therefore are looking likely to qualify and go into the ‘Northern’ side of the draw to play Ireland.
