First start for Francis in England's second Test

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

England have named their side to face Argentina in the second Test of their summer tour of the country, selecting soon-to-be Saint Piers Francis in the starting line-up and of course Dylan Hartley as captain.

Earning his first cap last weekend in San Juan, Francis' two assists with the game winning tries saw the Gravesend-born back receive the call to start this weekend.

Hartley, who saw out a full 80 minutes last weekend, will captain the side as they take on the Los Pumas again, this time in Santa Fe.

The game will be broadcast live on BBC 2, kicking off at 8.15pm UK time.
