England keep three Tigers for Irish build-up

England have retained three Leicester Tigers players in a 25-player squad for this weekend’s Quilter International against Ireland.
 
Ellis Genge and Ben Youngs, who both started the win over Georgia in the opening weekend of the Autumn Nations Cup, keep their places in the squad, with George Ford also included after working his way back from injury.

Joe Marchant (rehabilitation) and Joe Marler (reconditioning) will stay with the squad at England’s training base, while Mark Wilson has returned home to continue his rehabilitation.
 
England versus Ireland is live on Amazon Prime and Channel 4 on Saturday afternoon.
