WARRINGTON'S Alex Mitchell is again set to feature for England rugby union team when they on Wales in the Guinness Six Nations in Cardiff this weekend.

Northampton Saints' former Lymm High School and Lymm Rugby Club scrum-half, who gained his second cap when England defeated Italy at Twickenham a fortnight ago, has again been named on the bench by head coach Steve Borthwick.

In the only change to the England starting team that beat Italy 31-14 a fortnight ago, Anthony Watson comes in at left wing.

Vice-captain Courtney Lawes could make his England return following injury after being named as a replacement.

Borthwick said: “Wales v England in Cardiff is one of the iconic rugby fixtures, steeped in history and always full of passion.

“We know the Principality Stadium crowd will be in full voice and we will have to be at our very best to repeat the success we had in the last round against Italy.

“I have selected a team that I think has the right players and balance to meet the particular challenges we will face this weekend."
