Brian Ashton has not really sprung any thing out of the ordinary in his starting 15 to face Wales. The inclusion of Iain Balshaw over Matthew Tait at 15 was expected. Luke Narraway at 8 was somewhat more of a surprise.
The full 22 follows:
Forwards: Andrew Sheridan, Mark Regan, Phil Vickery (Captain), Simon Shaw, Steve Borthwick, James Haskell, Lewis Moody, Luke Narraway
Backs: Andy Gomarsall, Jonny Wilkinson, David Strettle, Toby Flood, Mike Tindall, Paul Sackey Iain Balshaw
