England coach, Martin Johnson, has named his team to face France in this Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations 2011 match at Twickenham.
The starting XV features only one change from the team which demolished Italy at Twickeham a fortnight ago, as Sale Sharks prop, Andrew Sheridan, is fit again. He replaces Alex Corbisiero, who is named among the replacements, displacing David Wilson of Bath Rugby.
