England picks unchanged squad for Australia test

November 25, 2014

LONDON (AP) — England is keeping faith with the squad that beat Samoa 28-9 last weekend for Saturday’s rugby test against Australia at Twickenham.

England says in a statement on Tuesday that Billy Twelvetrees is competing with Owen Farrell for the inside center position, meaning George Ford is set to start at flyhalf again.

England coach Stuart Lancaster must pick between James Haskell, Tom Wood and Ben Morgan for two places in the back row alongside captain Chris Robshaw.

Lancaster says “it was great to get the win last week and the whole 23 did well so we want to give those guys another chance against an Australian team who will want to finish their season on a high.”

England’s win against Samoa on Saturday ended a five-match losing streak.
