England will field a very different side for the second Test against New Zealand, with six changes in total – five of which are in the back line.
As predicted by The Rugby Blog readership, Charlie Hodgson drops out of the match squad altogether with Toby Flood filling his fly-half boots. He will be partnered by Danny Care, who makes his first start in an England shirt after looking sharp from the bench last week.
Mathew Tait is selected at full-back over Mike Brown, Tom Vandell replaces David Strettle and Jamie Noon starts at 12 alongside Mike Tindall.
In the forwards, Tim Payne comes in for Andrew Sheridan who was ruled out through injury – but otherwise the pack is unchanged.
Is this a back line to trouble the mighty All Blacks?
