Gloucester Rugby's Billy Twelvetrees has recovered from an ankle injury and will line up at inside centre for England against New Zealand on Saturday.
England have made five changes to their starting line-up for Saturday's 2nd Test in the Steinlager Series against New Zealand at Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin.
The RBS 6 Nations centre partnership of Billy Twelvetrees (Gloucester Rugby) and Luther Burrell (Northampton Saints) and half-backs Owen Farrell (Saracens) and Danny Care (Harlequins) are reunited, while there is a recall for Northampton Saints' Tom Wood at blind-side flanker in place of London Wasps' James Haskell.
There are two positional switches with Manusamoa Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers) moving from outside centre to right wing and Marland Yarde (London Irish) lining up on the left wing in place of Jonny May (Gloucester Rugby).
Northampton Saints' Dylan Hartley and Courtney Lawes and Saracens' Chris Ashton and Billy Vunipola are named on the replacements' bench, while Newcastle Falcons' Kieran Brookes comes into the match-day squad for the first time.
England Head Coach Stuart 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 tough, with the players who played at Eden Park putting their hands up and those who watched from the stands.
"I am sure it will be a fantastic occasion in Dunedin and we are really looking forward to challenging ourselves against the All Blacks. With the Crusaders game coming up around the corner and the third Test in Hamilton, all our squad will get opportunities which will be great experience as we continue to develop our depth in the build up to the World Cup."
