England make three changes ahead of All Blacks showdown





England coach Eddie Jones delivered Chris Ashton his first test of departure for four years to tackle New Zealand at Twickenham the Saturday.

Wing Chris Ashton will make his first start in England for four years as one of three changes for Saturday's showdown with New Zealand at Twickenham.

Ashton lined up on the right wing instead of Jack Nowell after impressing during his 15-minute spell as a substitute in the 12-11 victory over South Africa that opened the November internationals.

The 31-year-old has accumulated 40 appearances in an international career interrupted by suspension, losing the favor of successive English coaches and a long period in France with Toulon.

Nowell falls on the bench but Manu Tuilagi has no place for the center despite the recovery from the inguinal tension that excluded him against the Springboks.

The other two changes see Ben Moon enter for Alec Hepburn with his head down and Sam Underhill replaces Tom Curry, who was excluded from the rest of the fall by an ankle injury.

Lock Courtney Lawes returns to the bench after overcoming a problem in the lower back, forcing Zach Mercer out of the day 23. [19659006] Owen Farrell is co-captain of the team alongside Dylan Hartley and only needs to another point to reach the 700 for England.

England faces the All Blacks for the first time in four years and have been installed as outlaws against world champions.
"The expectation for Saturday is no different than any other test game," said former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones.

"We want to be at our best, better than we were in the previous test match and we want to play with pride and passion that inflames the fan."

The Australian Jones added: "It was a good week, the players recovered well, well trained on Tuesday, exceptionally well on Wednesday and we can not wait to face the challenge of facing New Zealand on Saturday. "
