Wales vs England predicted team: Who should start the second Rugby World Cup warm-up game?

England will attempt to make it two wins from two in their Rugby World Cup warm-up matches as they cross the Severn this Saturday in their return fixture against Wales.

Fresh from an impressive 33-19 victory in their opening Quilter International, Eddie Jones named his final England squad to confirm the 31 players who will travel to Japan early next month.

But there is still plenty to play for in their remaining warm-ups against Wales, Ireland and Italy as players attempt to convince Jones that they deserve a place in his starting XV. 

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.
