England Under 20s have made six changes to the side that beat Italy 63-3 for their second IRB Junior World Championship clash against Australia at the QBE Stadium in Auckland on Friday, kick off 0635 BST (live on Sky Sports).
Howard Packman, Henry Purdy, Billy Burns, Henry Taylor, Charlie Ewels and Joel Conlon all come into the side as they prepare to take on Australia for the first time since 2012 - a game England won 17-13.
Australia beat Argentina 36-17 in their opening Pool game and captain Maro Itoje says that his side will be looking to put in a strong performance against their southern hemisphere rivals.
He said: "We were pleased with how we played against Italy but the overriding feeling was that we still had more to come. We have trained well this week with the ultimate aim of performing well in this game.
"Australia will be a huge threat, they have players who have some Super Rugby experience, but we have players who have played at the top level too. We have prepared well and it'll be a real honour to lead this England side out on Friday."
