SUPERSUB Jamie George will finally get an England start when Eddie Jones’ side take on Samoa at Twickenham on Saturday.
The Saracens hooker has won all his 19 caps off the bench but will be on from the off this weekend.
George’s promotion means Dylan Hartley is a replacement so Jones has named Chris Robshaw and George Ford as co-captains.
The pair did the job against the Barbarians in May and it is another boost for Robshaw after his World Cup nightmare as skipper.
Jones has made nine changes in all to the starting line-up that beat Australia 30-6 last weekend at Twickenham Stadium.
Robshaw moves to open side flanker with Maro Itoje starting at blind side and Exeter’s Sam Simmonds makes his first start at No.8 in the absence of crocked Nathan Hughes.
Leicester’s Ellis Genge starts at loose-head and Bath’s Charlie Ewels starts with weekend’s man-of-the-match Joe Launchbury in the second row.
Alex Lozowski and Henry Slade reunite in midfield after playing there in the summer in Argentina, Mike Brown is back at 15 and Danny Care starts at scrum-half.
UN-BELIEVABLE Why was Jonny May invited to North Korea by Kim Jong-un and who is the England rugby star?
Jones said: “This is an exciting squad to play against Samoa and we are expecting them to be immensely physical and committed this weekend.
“We want to follow up last week’s performance against Australia and play better again this week.
