Two Exeter Chiefs players have been named in the England squad for this Saturday's Six Nations clash with Wales at Twickenham.

Jack Nowell is back as a winger, while Luke Cowan-Dickie is one of four changes made on the bench after the team's victory over Ireland in the previous game.

“We’ve picked our best 23 to get the job done on Saturday. The squad have prepared well this week and I’m happy with how things have progressed ... “It is a shame that Jamie George misses out through injury and we wish him well in his recovery, but it provides a great opportunity for Luke Cowan-Dickie to show what he’s about. “There is a huge amount to play for on Saturday and we are looking forward to being back at home in front of a vocal Twickenham crowd.”

– England head coach Eddie Jones

The squad also includes several players from Bath Rugby.
