RUGBY: Attwood on bench for Paris clash
BATH lock Dave Attwood has been named on the bench for England's RBS Six Nations opener with France on Saturday.
Attwood, 26, is named among the replacements as England coach Stuart Lancaster gives debuts to outside centre Luther Burrell and wing Jack Nowell in Paris.
Gloucester's elusive runner Jonny May, who played youth rugby for Wootton Bassett RFC, wins his second cap on the left wing having appeared against Argentina during last summer's tour.
Bath fly-half George Ford, and wing Anthony Watson will travel to Paris with the squad as cover, along with prop Matt Mullan.
