• Care played against Samoa in England’s win in November
• ‘Eddie Jones just says keep doing what you’re doing’
Danny Care believes he can do no more to convince Eddie Jones that he deserves to be England’s starting scrum-half for the Six Nations and the latest indications suggest he will get his wish against Italy on Sunday.
Care played a leading role in England’s full-blooded training session on Wednesday morning, lining up in what appeared to be England’s strongest backline, with George Ford and Owen Farrell alongside him. Mike Brown and Jack Nowell also took full part and are expected to feature against Italy after both were retained in Jones’s 25-man squad. The Exeter prop Alec Hepburn is poised to make his England debut in Rome.
