England have made five changes to their side for the second Test against New Zealand on Saturday, with Manu Tuilagi moving from outside centre to the wing.
Luther Burrell starts at outside centre alongside Billy Twelvetrees, who has recovered from an end of season ankle injury to resume the Six Nations partnership.
Scrum half Danny Care has also recovered from a shoulder injury which and plays alongside fly half Owen Farrell, replacing benched Ben Youngs and Freddie Burns.
Marland Yarde switches to the left wing, while centre Kyle Eastmond and wing Jonny may drop out of the match day 23.
There is only one change in the pack; Tom Wood replacing James Haskell at blindside flanker. Hooker Rob Webber, lock Geoff Parling and Ben Morgan keep their shirts despite the presences of Dylan Hartley, Courtney Lawes and Billy Vunipola, who all come onto the bench.
Uncapped tight-head prop Kieran Brookes makes his first appearance on the bench too, replacing Henry Thomas.
Speaking about the competition for places, Lancaster said: “It’s been evident in training all along just how intense competition for places is but especially now we have the guys who arrived at the end of last week.
“We knew selection for this Test was always going to be extra tough with the players who played at Eden Park putting their hands up and those who watched from the stands.
“We believe that this is a team which can level the series in Dunedin but we are also conscious that there are two Tests and a significant game against the Crusaders left on this tour and we will use those opportunities to test the whole squad.”
Lancaster added: “Kyle, James, Jonny, Ben and Freddie did a great job and deserve a huge amount of credit and now the pressure is on those now starting and coming on to the bench to raise the bar even higher.
“Manu played all his England age-grade rugby on the wing and has trained well there for us so we are confident that he can bring his skill set to that position.
“We’re also delighted that Kieran Brookes has the opportunity to win his first cap off the bench as yet another example of someone coming through our Under 20 programme into the senior team.”
