England’s Elliot Daly will replace the injured Henry Slade against Ireland in Saturday’s Six Nations match, making his first international start at outside centre since 2016.

Slade suffered a calf injury in training on Monday, making way for Daly – a replacement full-back in last weekend’s victory against France – to return to the starting XV.

Harlequins back Joe Marchant is among the replacements.

England’s forward pack is unchanged.
