England recall Saints pair

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Second row Lawes has begun all four Twickenham Tests, while Hartley and Wood make their third starts having featured as replacements for last weekend’s victory over Samoa.

Stuart Lancaster’s matchday 23 is unchanged, though there is a third switch to the team that will take to the field from the off as Billy Twelvetrees replaces Owen Farrell at inside centre.

Head coach Lancaster believes the recalled Saints duo will come back firing.

“The Samoa game gave us the opportunity to give James and Rob a start and they made a good contribution,” he said. “Tom and Dylan were disappointed not to be in the XV against Samoa.

“They are desperate to go out and perform on Saturday to help us finish the series on a high.”

The game kicks off at 2:30pm on Saturday and is being shown live on Sky Sports 2 and Sky Sports 2HD.
