Leicester Tigers quartet Dan Cole, Jack van Poortvliet, Freddie Steward and Anthony Watson have been included in the England matchday squad for their final Guinness Six Nations fixture, away to Ireland, of the 2023 tournament.

Scrum-half van Poortvliet and outside backs Steward and Watson start, while Cole is named among the replacements and - if used - will make his 100th Test appearance for the national side.

England travel to Dublin for Saturday's fixture which kick's off at 5.00pm.

Ollie Chessum, who has featured in each of the four games played so far in this season's Six Nations, is unavailable for selection through injury.
