ENGLAND v IRELAND BETTING PREVIEW
England will be confident of recording a third successive win of their Six Nations campaign. Their 15-9 win against Scotland at Murrayfield may not have been completely convincing, however their 40-9 triumph against Italy was quite impressive thanks to a hat-trick of tries from Jonathan Joseph and one each from George Ford and Owen Farrell. They are yet to concede a try in this year's tournament.
England make two changes to the side who beat Italy. Saracens flanker Maro Itoje will make his full debut at Twickenham this weekend as the exciting prospect replaces the injured Joe Launchbury. Joe Marler replaces Mako Vunipola, while uncapped centre Elliot Daly is on the bench.
Ireland haven’t got their Six Nations off to the best of starts with a single point won from their opening two fixtures. Joe Schmidt's men defied injuries to earn a creditable draw against Wales, and were in cruise control against France but suffered a 10-9 defeat in a closely-fought clash at the Stade De France
Thankfully for Schmidt, Johnny Sexton - who remains central to Ireland's hopes - should be fit to feature. Uncapped duo Stuart McCloskey and Josh van der Flier will make their Ireland debuts as they make five changes to the side who lost to France. Dave Kearney has been ruled out with injury, which has paved the way for Keith Earls to start in his place on the wing. Also coming in to the side are Donnacha Ryan and Mike Ross.
Ireland have won only once in 5 years against England, that solo win came last year in a – round 3 fixture where Ireland emerged victorious at 19-9 on their home field with centre Robbie Henshaw scoring the only try of the game and Sexton kicking 14 points with four penalties and one conversion.
