England head coach Eddie Jones has named his matchday squad to play Australia in the second Test of the Old Mutual Wealth Series on Saturday.
Jones has made four changes to the side that defeated Argentina 21-8 on Saturday.
Owen Farrell makes a return to the team for the first time this season in place of Henry Slade at inside centre. Jonny May has been passed fit and will play on the right wing. Anthony Watson moves to fullback after Mike Brown was not considered for selection following his head injury last weekend.
The only change in the forward pack sees Joe Launchbury replace George Kruis. The Wasps lock will partner Courtney Lawes who is set to win his 60th cap for England.
Maro Itoje is also called up in the matchday squad and is named on the bench.
