Academy graduate Henry Arundell is set to make his third tournament appearance in the 2023 Guinness Six Nations Championship for England this Saturday against France.

Arundell has been selected as one of Steve Borthwick's replacements for the third consecutive game, as the side look for a third tournament win this year up against Les Bleus.

He earned his fourth senior international cap in a brief cameo against Wales in Round 3, making a near instant impact in the round before against Italy with his second England try.

The match will kick-off at 4.45pm this Saturday (11th) at Twickenham Stadium, live on ITV.

Steve Borthwick said: “We look forward to welcoming a strong France team to Twickenham this weekend in what will undoubtedly be another exciting encounter in this year’s Six Nations competition.

“Over the last three years France have built a formidable side and with just three games behind us, this England team has an excellent opportunity to test itself against one of the very best teams in the world, as we progress and build on the foundations we have put in place in the short time we have been together.

“The players selected to face our visitors are again a reflection of what I see to be the right balance of personnel for the challenge we face in this game.

"Marcus Smith starts at fly half and Dave Ribbans returns to the match day 23.

“Congratulations to Ellis Genge who will captain the side for the first time.

"Ellis will lead from the front with the sort of dedication and spirit that now rightly typifies this England team.

“I know that a sold-out Twickenham will be in full voice, and that our magnificent supporters will make Saturday a very special occasion with a brilliant atmosphere.”
