- Starting XV against USA will feature eight debutants
- Jones cites 2017 tour debuts of Tom Curry and Sam Underhill
England host the United States at Twickenham on Sunday afternoon on US Independence Day, but it is Eddie Jones’s side for whom new beginnings loom. With a bit of luck a sense of freedom too because, while this is a vastly different side in personnel, the turgid performances during the Six Nations still linger and England could do with reinvigoration.
There is no danger of defeat: the US have not played since the 2019 World Cup, have a host of raw, inexperienced players and are without the instrumental fly-half AJ MacGinty. The same can be said of the fixture against Canada next Saturday, so performances rather than points are what matters most.
