England team announcement LIVE: Eddie Jones names side to face Wales amid Six Nations coronavirus talks

Follow the latest updates live from England’s team announcement as Eddie Jones names his squad to face Wales in this weekend’s Six Nations encounter.

England still harbour hopes of winning the Six Nations title, though will need France to slip up in one of their two remaining games. However, talk of who will emerge triumphant has been overshadowed by the coronavirus outbreak, which has already claimed the Ireland vs Italy match and looks set to postpone England’s final game in Rome next weekend, with all sporting events required to be played behind closed doors.

Both Anthony Watson and Mark Wilson are back in contention for a place in the squad, though there is no Mako Vunipola after England decided against bringing him into camp due to the prop travelling back from Tonga via Hong Kong. However, Vunipola has been passed fit and free of any coronavirus symptoms by Saracens, meaning he is available for his club this weekend. Jones will name his squad at 10:30am before speaking to the media at 11:15am. Follow the live updates below.
