Gloucester’s Willi Heinz named in England squad to face Wales

England’s team to face Wales this afternoon at Twickenham has been announced, with Gloucester’s Willi Heinz in the line-up as a finisher.

The game is a must-win for England if they’re to keep pace with joint second Ireland and first place France who lead the six nations by four points.

Here is what coach Eddie Jones had to say about the upcoming fixture:

“We’ve had a really good two week preparation – a fallow week in Oxford where we had good training days last Thursday and Friday and three good training days this week culminating in a very good session Wednesday.

“Wales are a very tough, well-coached side and they’ve been building on their attack since Wayne Pivac has taken over.

“It’s always a tough game against Wales and we know they will bring that toughness to all the contest areas. We’re looking forward to playing at home again and getting back out in front of our fantastic fans.”
