Saints duo in for Barbarians challenge

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Both were involved last Wednesday as the Southern Barabarians were comprehensively put away and Dickson also got into the thick of the action during the second Test defeat in Johannesburg this past weekend.

Elswhere in the squad, Ugo Monye (wing), Tom Youngs (hooker) and Jamie Gibson (flanker) all make their first starts of the tour and Karl Dickson, brother of Lee, comes straight into the matchday 22 after Ben Youngs' injury.


Lancaster is determined to use the midweek match as a springboard to avoid a series whitewash when his side meet the Springboks again this Saturday afternoon.


"We have talked today about finishing the tour strongly this week and these players have a great opportunity to do this in the second of the two midweek games," England's head coach commented. "There are still selection decisions to be made for Saturday but the players' focus will be on putting in a strong cohesive team performance and building on on the positives from last week, but also learning the lessons."
