England will be the side with the target on their backs this year as they come into the 2013 championships as the reigning title holders, having beaten Georgia, Wales and Ireland in Madrid a year ago.

Two of the Saints' contingent, wing Josh Skelcey and lock Josh Peters, have been named by England head coach John Fletcher in the starting line-up, with wing Howard Packman and lock Jordan Onojaife both on the bench.
