Dylan Hartley and Courtney Lawes have been rewarded for their impactful performances off the bench in Dunedin by being promoted into the starting pack for the third test, where they join Tom Wood.

Elsewhere Lee Dickson and Luther Burrell have both been included on the replacements' bench for the game.

“We want to finish the tour and the season on a high and we have a fantastic opportunity on Saturday," said England head coach Stuart Lancaster. "Our aim was to win a Test series and we are disappointed that we haven’t but I am confident the players selected will go all out to achieve the win on Saturday.

“We have progressed as a squad during this tour and while there has been challenges with the end of season scheduling affecting selection it has been a great opportunity to work with a wider group of players and test many of them at the highest level in the build up to the World Cup.”


Saturday's game is being shown live on Sky Sports, with coverage starting at 8am.
