Lewis Ludlow named as England captain for Canada test

Gloucester Rugby’s Lewis Ludlow will captain England at Twickenham when Eddie Jones’ side take on Canada on Saturday. 

After impressing on his debut last weekend against the USA, Ludlow has kept the captain armband and will earn his second cap at blindside flanker.

Eddie Jones said: “Our focus this camp is being as strong a 36-player squad as we can be and there has been a lot of hard work and intense competition.

“There is a responsibility on the 23 players selected to perform to their personal best.

“We want to go out there and put smiles on the faces on all the supporters watching at Twickenham and at home on Channel 4.”

England v Canada is live on Channel 4, with coverage starting from 2.30pm and kick-off at 3pm on Saturday.
