Click to follow
ENGLAND A have made five changes from the side beaten 32-17 in France a fortnight ago for tonight's meeting with Wales A at Leicester.

The centre Nick Greenstock, the wing Dominic Chapman, the prop Darren Molloy, the lock Rob Fiddler and the flanker Martin Corry have all stepped down - but the team still includes seven senior internationals. Sale's Jos Baxendell, an England tourist in Argentina last summer, replaces Greenstock, while the Bath wing Adedayo Adebayo takes over from Chapman as a reward for his fine club form.
