England coach Steve Borthwick confirms unchanged XV for home Six Nations clash with Wales as Red Rose hope to build on opening Italy win

TDPel Media –
Ahead of the highly anticipated Six Nations clash against Wales at Twickenham on Saturday, England’s head coach, Steve Borthwick, has revealed an unchanged starting XV from the victorious lineup that faced Italy in Rome last weekend.
Borthwick’s strategy aims to capitalize on the momentum gained from their 27-24 triumph over Italy, making only one adjustment on the bench with the return of vice-captain Ellis Genge, who missed the opener due to a foot injury.
The decision showcases Borthwick’s confidence in the players, including five debutants, as England gears up for another challenging encounter.
Line-Up Stability and Debutant Confidence:
Maintaining selection stability, Borthwick has expressed unwavering support for the players who marked their England debuts in Rome.
Notably, Ethan Roots and Fraser Dingwall retain their spots in the starting XV, while Chandler Cunningham-South, Fin Smith, and Immanuel Feyi-Waboso are poised on the bench.
The latter, Exeter’s emerging wing sensation, is set to earn his second Test cap against his country of birth, adding an intriguing subplot to the clash with Wales.
