England vs Australia: Teams named for crucial #RWC2015 clash
Wallabies coach Michael Chieka's reverted back to the same starting team that beat Fiji.
CAPE TOWN - Both England and Australia have named their teams for Saturday's crucial Pool A clash in the Rugby World Cup on Saturday.
Wallabies coach Michael Chieka's reverted back to the same starting team that beat Fiji in their opening game.
Cheika made 14 changes for the game against Uruguay, which the Aussies won 65-3.
The Wallabies have the chance to knock England out of the World Cup at the pool stage with a win at Twickenham on Saturday night.
Having lost to neighbours Wales last weekend, Stuart Lancaster's men could make history by becoming the first tournament hosts not to reach the quarter final stage if Australia win this Saturday.
Meanwhile Lancaster's had to make a few changes to his team as well.
Sam Burgess has been demoted to the bench while Jonathan Joseph returns from injury and will pair up with Brad Barritt in the midfield.
Owen Farrell retains his place at flyhalf, while Ben Youngs has also been included after passing a fitness test after injuring his ankle in the defeat to Wales last Saturday.
Ben Morgan returns at No 8 and Joe Launchbury will start at lock.
Billy Vunipola of course ruled out of the tournament and Courtney Lawes still struggling with a knee injury,
