However, second row Alex Brown has been left out of the 22 as head coach Andy Robinson has made six changes following last weekend's 34-3 thumping in Sydney.
Newcastle back Mathew Tait is switched from centre to wing and there are call-ups for Tait's Falcons colleague, centre Jamie Noon, Leicester fly-half Andy Goode, Tigers forwards George Chuter and Ben Kay, plus Sale Sharks lock Chris Jones and Wasps flanker Joe Worsley.
Wing Tom Voyce and Brown are dropped from the match-day 22 completely, while fly-half Olly Barkley, hooker Lee Mears, lock Louis Deacon and flanker Magnus Lund find themselves demoted to the bench.
Chuter will make his first Test start - he is among five Leicester forwards on duty, including the entire front row - with 34-year-old World Cup winner Mike Catt retained at inside centre for a 67th cap, taking him above Neil Back on England's all-time list.
England are striving to avoid a fifth successive defeat against all opponents, which would be their worst results sequence for more than 20 years.
Voyce pays the price for a poor performance in Sydney, when alarming defensive deficiencies surfaced, while Brown could make little impact opposite established Wallabies second-row pairing Nathan Sharpe and Dan Vickerman.
Tait's appearance on the wing - he has played there regularly for Newcastle - allows the consistent Noon a chance to cement his place as England's leading centre, although goalkicker Goode's promotion at the expense of Barkley is a surprise.
Gloucester Full-back Iain Balshaw and wing Tom Varndell - England's most dangerous attackers in Sydney - are deservedly retained, but it is in the pack where head coach Robinson has really shaken things up.
England: I Balshaw (Gloucester); T Varndell (Leicester), J Noon (Newcastle), M Catt (London Irish), M Tait (Newcastle); A Goode (Leicester), P Richards (Gloucester); G Rowntree (Leicester), G Chuter (Leicester), J White (Leicester), C Jones (Sale Sharks), B Kay (Leicester), J Worsley (Wasps), L Moody (Leicester), P Sanderson (Worcester, capt).
Replacements: L Mears (Bath), T Payne (Wasps), L Deacon (Leicester), M Lund (Sale Sharks), N Walshe (Bath), O Barkley (Bath), S Abbott (Harlequins).
