Bagshot – Gloucester scrumhalfWilli Heinzwas handed a chance to force his way intoEngland’sWorld Cup squad after being given a Test debut in the starting side to play Wales at Twickenham on Sunday.

The 32-year-old Heinz, born in Christchurch, New Zealand, has also been selected as vice-captain for this weekend’s match against Grand Slam champions Wales, a fixture that takes place just a day before coach Eddie Jones names his 31-man World Cup squad for Japan 2019.

Flyhalf George Ford will captain the team in the first of England’s four World Cup warm-up matches.
