Six Nations: England makes 3 changes vs. France

Six Nations: England makes 3 changes vs. France

England recalled veteran lock Simon Shaw on Wednesday to help combat France's beefed-up pack in one of three changes for the Six Nations match this weekend.
The 35-year-old Shaw, who made his first England appearance in 1996 and will now be the oldest player in the tournament, replaces the benched Nick Kennedy from the team's 14-13 loss to Ireland at Croke Park 11 days ago.
James Haskell also drops to the bench for Tom Croft at blindside flanker and winger Ugo Monye comes in for Paul Sackey, who has a calf injury. Monye will start on the left wing with Mark Cueto moving to the opposite flank for Sunday's match at Twickenham.
