England have announced their starting line-up for Saturday's 3rd Test in the Steinlager Series against New Zealand at Waikato Stadium, Hamilton.
Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers) and Freddie Burns (Gloucester Rugby) replace the injured Danny Care (Harlequins) and Owen Farrell (Saracens) at half back while Kyle Eastmond (Bath Rugby) comes in for Billy Twelvetrees (Gloucester Rugby) in the centre, where he will be joined by Manu Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers), with Chris Ashton (Saracens) on the wing.
There are three changes in the pack with Dylan Hartley (Northampton Saints), Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints) and Billy Vunipola (Saracens) taking over from Rob Webber (Bath Rugby), Joe Launchbury (London Wasps) and Ben Morgan (Gloucester Rugby) respectively.
England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said:
"We want to finish the tour and the season on a high and we have a fantastic opportunity on Saturday. Our aim was to win a Test series and we are disappointed that we haven't but I am confident the players selected will go all out to achieve the win on Saturday.
"We have progressed as a squad during this tour and while there has been challenges with the end of season scheduling affecting selection it has been a great opportunity to work with a wider group of players and test many of them at the highest level in the build up to the World Cup."
