Northampton centre Matt Allen and Bath hooker Mark Regan have been handed the task of facing New Zealand for a third consecutive Tuesday after being named in the England A team to play at Leicester tonight.

The pair were part of the England Emerging Players team that conceded 59 points to the midweek All Blacks a fortnight ago and also played in a much improved display as the England Rugby Partnership side lost 18- 11 last week.

Nine of the ERP team are retained. Changes are kept to a minimum, John Bentley and Nick Greenstock having been promoted to the Test team last weekend, while the selectors take the chance to scrutinise the form of Adedayo Adebayo on the wing and No 8 Ben Clarke.
