George Ford and Jack Nowell have been named in England's starting XV for the second Test against Australia on Saturday (18 June). Eddie Jones' has retained a largely unchanged side from the one that won in Brisbane last Saturday with back-row forward Chris Robshaw set to win his 50<sup>th cap for his country.

Ford's return at fly-half sees Owen Farrell move to inside centre, while Nowell returns at wing replacing Marlon Yarde, who drops out of the squad completely. Saracens hooker Jamie George, Harlequins back-row forward Jack Clifford and Wasps centre Elliot Daly have been named as replacements.

"We've picked a 23 to get the job done in Melbourne," said England head coach Eddie Jones. "Throughout the week the players have shown they're desperate to wear the red rose which meant some close calls on selection. It's a 23 that suits the way we want to play at AAMI Park. George and Owen playing together gives us two great kicking options and Jack is a high work-rate player."

England secured just their fourth victory over the Wallabies in Australia in their 39-28 win and their first ever in Brisbane to take a 1-0 lead in the three Test series on Saturday 11 June.

England team to face Australia in second Test: Mike Brown, Anthony Watson, Jonathan Joseph, Owen Farrell, Jack Nowell, George Ford, Ben Youngs, Mako Vunipola, Dylan Hartley, Dan Cole, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Chris Robshaw, James Haskell, Billy Vunipola.

Replacements: Jamie George, Matt Mullan, Paul Hill, Joe Launchbury, Courtney Lawes, Jack Clifford, Danny Care, Elliot Daly
