The 20-year-old Cornishman, along with Northampton Saints centre Luther Burrell and Gloucester flyer Jonny May, are all set to debut for Stuart Lancaster’s side at the Stade de France.

We can't wait for Saturday. We've had a good two weeks and all the players have pushed hard for selection.

Congratulations to Jack and Luther who deserve their chance, as does Jonny May starting his first RBS 6 Nations game.

Nowell made his debut for the Chiefs in 2012 and is usually a full back but on Saturday, he's on the wing - viewers should look out for the number 14 on his back.
