New faces for England

Pa
Friday, January 31, 2014

LONDON - England will enter Sunday's critical 2014 Six Nations opener against France with a radically reshaped backline founded on promise over experience.

In a bold team selection that could be viewed as risky for a championship showdown in Paris, uncapped pair Jack Nowell and Luther Burrell will be installed on the right wing and at outside centre.

Jonny May will start on the left wing in the XV named by head coach Stuart Lancaster on Thursday morning, making only his second Test appearance.

With inside centre Billy Twelvetrees possessing only eight caps, it means England are set to enter a potentially title-deciding clash with a rookie three-quarter line full of unknown quantities.

Scrum-half Danny Care, fly-half Owen Farrell and full-back Mike Brown number 81 caps, offering a degree of maturity in what is expected to be a bruising collision at the Stade de France, but Lancaster has otherwise gambled on potential.
