Rugby Union – Jones has faith in Chiefs duo

England head coach Eddie Jones has included Exeter Chiefs duo Jack Nowell and Alec Hepburn in his side for Saturday's international against South Africa at Twickenham. Nowell has not played for England since last season's Six Nations while Hepburn comes in for the injured Mako Vunipola. "It was a really tight decision between Alec and Ben Moon, but the two of them will do a great job for the 80 minutes," said Jones. "Jack Nowell has an incredible ability to find the ball and has great feet." Mark Wilson will start at number eight while Dylan Hartley and Owen Farrell have been confirmed as the co-captains. England are 4/7 with bet365 to beat the Springboks and 15/8 to win the 2019 Six Nations.
