Jonny May LEFT OUT of England squad to face Ireland

Eddie Jones has chosen his team - and Gloucester's May has been overlooked once again

Gloucester winger Jonny May has been left out of England’s Grand Slam decider against Ireland on Saturday evening.

The 26-year-old – who has made 25 appearances for his country – will not travel to Dublin with the squad after Wasps’ Elliot Daly recovered from a blow to the head.

Fellow winger Anthony Watson replaces Jack Nowell after an impressive, try-scoring return from injury in the emphatic 61-21 win over Scotland.

Billy Vunipola came off the bench last weekend after recovering early from a knee injury, resulting in him being rewarded with his first Six Nations start of the tournament.

After winning the Six Nations with their demolition of the Scots, England are looking to make history by recording a 19th-straight Test victory.

May’s Gloucester teammate Ross Moriarty has been named in the back row for Wales as they take on France in Paris. The Number Eight retains his place after a fine performance against Ireland in Cardiff.
