A look at the side which will line-up against the 2011 World Cup winners at Twickenham on Saturday

Stuart Lancaster has made one change from the side that beat Argentina last weekend with the return of prop Dan Cole in place of David Wilson, as they look to complete a clean sweep in the autumn internationals with a win against world Number One side New Zealand on Saturday.

Joe Marler keeps his place in the front-row after both Alex Corbisiero and Make Vunipola were ruled out through injury, while Ben Foden remains on the left wing due to Marland Yarde and Christian Wade's failure to recover in time for the crunch clash at Twickenham.

Dylan Hartley remains at hooker following his impressive performance against the Pumas, and Joe Launchbury and Courtney Lawes continue their second-row partnership with Tom Wood, Chris Robshaw and Billy Vunipola getting another run out in the back-row.

Lee Dickson and Owen Farrell continue at half-back, although Leicester scrum-half Ben Youngs returns to the bench after recovering from a hip injury that ruled him out last week.

The under-pressure centre partnership of Billy Twelvetrees and Joel Tomkins get another chance to show they can be the answer to the long-term problem in midfield, and with Manu Tuilagi ruled out until midway through the 2014 RBS Six Nations earlier this week, they will be eager to seize their chance.

Foden joins another player under considerable pressure on the wing in Chris Ashton, while England's stand-out player of the series so far Mike Brown continues at full-back, and he'll be expecting a lot more traffic coming his way when the All Blacks come to town.
