England name four debutants for Canada test

Four more players will earn their first England caps this Saturday as coach Eddie Jones named his team to face Canada at Twickenham.

Dan Kelly will play at inside centre, Adam Radwan at left wing, Harry Wells at lock, and No. 8 Alex Dombrandt, who has been knocking at the door for years with his impressive ball-carrying displays for Harlequins, will get their first taste of international rugby.

They follow the 12 new caps awarded in last week’s 43-29 victory over the United States.

Jamie Blamire, who came off the bench for a try-scoring debut last week, will start at hooker on Saturday, while Lewis Ludlow, on his second cap, will again captain the side at blind-side flanker.

Jones is without 13 players on British & Irish Lions duty and has rested several others after long back-to-back domestic seasons.
