Doran Jones starts in England midweek match, Dickson on bench

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Both players added to their tally of international caps in Saturday's test match in Durban. And both will have the chance to atone for that loss against the Springboks when they run out in Kimberley.

England head coach Stuart Lancaster has changed the entire starting 15 for Wendesday's game, with the Saints pair the only two players to be retained from the test match 22.


"Every one of the 22 is desperate to play," Lancaster said. "They have trained superbly and their attitude while waiting for their chance has been first class. There is a lot of competition for places across the board and Wednesday gives these players a chance to lay down a marker and for the whole squad to build some momentum towards Saturday's Test."


The game will be shown live on Sky Sports 1, with coverage starting at 1:30pm.
