Steve Borthwick is set to hand Owen Farrell his No 10 jersey for England’s clash with Ireland this weekend.
The captain was dropped for his side’s humiliating defeat to France last weekend, with Marcus Smith starting in the 53-10 defeat. Farrell did make an appearance off the bench early in the second half but was unable to turn the tide.
But as England head into their final Six Nations game against Ireland this weekend, Borthwick is set to hand Farrell his starting spot again, as per Mail Online Sport.
Borthwick is also set to recall both Manu TulManu Tuilagi and Henry Slade for the game in Dublin.

The last time England played Ireland with all three players available was in 2019 and they won 32-20 in Dublin.
