England stick with same 23 for Australia

ENGLAND have named an unchanged match 23 for Saturday’s QBE International against Australia (2.30pm, live on Sky Sports HD).

The same squad that played against Samoa will line up against the Wallabies at Twickenham for the final November Test.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “There has been some strong competition for places throughout the whole series and with our strength in depth increasing in many positions and key players to return from injury soon, we will be in good shape for 2015.

“It was great to get the win last week and the whole 23 did well so we want to give those guys another chance against an Australian team who will want to finish their season on a high.

“We’ve had great support at Twickenham over the last three games and we are determined to give the fans something to shout about this weekend.”
