England head coach Eddie Jones has named the team that will play in his first game in charge since taking over after the World Cup. 

14 of the starting 15 featured in the World Cup. New captain Dylan Hartley returns to the team after missing the tournament due to an earlier suspension.

On the bench, Jones picks three uncapped players in Paul Hill, Jack Clifford and Ollie Devoto. The other five players on the bench all featured last Autumn.

Former captain Chris Robshaw keeps his place in the back-row. He moves from openside flanker to the blindside under Jones' new regime. The Harlequins captain featured predominantly at No.7 under Stuart Lancaster's reign. 

Eddie Jones has also announced the team's three vice-captains to assist Hartley. Mike Brown, Owen Farrell and Billy Vunipola have been handed the extra responsibilities by the Australian coach.

Jones paid praise to former head coach Stuart Lancaster at his first team announcement. He told The RFU website; "We are indebted to the work Stuart Lancaster has done over the last four years. I have inherited a talented and highly motivated group of players."

England travel north to face Scotland in Murrayfield on Saturday.
