England to make changes against Wales?
Stuart Lancaster is considering making changes to the England side which won in Italy last weekend, ahead of their massive Six Nations clash against Wales at Twickenham.
After coming on as replacements in Italy and having a positive impact, scrum-half Lee Dickson and number eight Ben Morgan could make a possible start.
Possibly joining them in the starting 15 is returning trio Toby Flood, Manu Tuilagi and Courtney Lawes following injury.
The last time the trio represented their country was during last year’s dismal World Cup campaign, which was engulfed in controversy on and off the field.
“Players have to be on form and playing well to go into a Test match against a side of the quality of Wales,” said interim coach Lancaster.
“There were also some impressive performances from the bench against Italy, notably Lee and Ben. There are now options coming back into the equation which previously weren’t available – three World Cup players (Flood, Tuilagi, Lawes).”
After Martin Johnson’s resignation last year, new interim coach Lancaster has led a revived England to victory’s against Scotland and Italy in their opening two matches of the tournament.
However, Warren Gatland’s Welsh side will prove a much tougher ask as they are chasing a Triple Crown, and even even a third Grand Slam in eight years.
