England confirm that James Haskell will replace injured Ben Morgan for this weekend's Six Nations clash against Ireland.

England head coach Stuart Lancaster has made just one change to his squad ahead of this Sunday's Six Nations clash against Ireland.

James Haskell enters the fray at blindside flanker, while Tom Wood moves into the number eight spot to replace the injured Ben Morgan.

Thomas Waldrom will take Haskell's place on the bench, while Manu Tuilagi has been informed that he needs to prove his fitness in order to regain a starting spot following his return from an ankle injury.

England clinched a 38-18 win over Scotland last weekend.

England team to play Ireland:

Alex Goode, Chris Ashton, Brad Barritt, Billy Twelvetrees, Mike Brown, Owen Farrell, Ben Youngs; Joe Marler, Tom Youngs, Dan Cole, Joe Launchbury, Geoff Parling, James Haskell, Chris Robshaw, Tom Wood
