What we know so far:England have lost their last four Tests, and will be without their top-six hooker for at least the next monthEngland have had their share of issues with players over the past few years, but a new crop of stars could help ease the burden.
England are the last of the Six Nations contenders to play in the championship and will have to overcome a tough England side that is in a strong position at the moment.
The Irish will be hoping that they can pick up some of the points lost in the defeat to Australia and win some of their matches to maintain their lead in the standings.
The Rugby Championship will be the second leg of the second series between the sides after a Test match between the teams at Twickenham in May.
Ireland have lost three of their last five Tests, with the two wins coming against the Springboks and Australia.
