Only one change for England

England have made just one change to their team for Saturday’s game against Argentina with prop Perry Freshwater coming in for Andrew Sheridan.

Freshwater, the Perpignan forward was considered injured for last week’s All Black clash and he will make his first start for England.

The bench has a few changes in Tom Palmer, Josh Lewsey and Toby Flood replace Chris Jones, Mark Van Gisbergen and Andy Goode.

Robinson has stayed with the core of the team resisting changes although this decision may be good for this week it may well come back to haunt him in fourth test when he has to make changes due to a club commitment not to play any players in all four tests. Martin Corry stays at blind-side flanker and is still the captain.

Lewsey has recovered from his knock on the knee which will help England turn around a losing streak of six tests not matched since 1972.

Flanker Tom Rees and wing Mark Cueto have been left out of the squad as they are struggling with injuries.

Saracens centre Ben Johnston, who captained England Saxons against Canada this summer was called up to the squad but does not make the match-day 22 .

England team:

Balshaw (Gloucester); Sackey (Wasps), Noon (Newcastle), Allen (Gloucester), Cohen (Northampton); Hodgson (Sale Sharks), Perry (Bristol); Freshwater (Perpignan), Chuter (Leicester), White (Leicester), Grewcock (Bath), Kay (Leicester), Corry (Leicester, capt), Moody (Leicester), Sanderson (Worcester).
Replacements: Mears (Bath), Turner (Sale), Palmer (Wasps), Lund (Sale), Richards (Gloucester), Flood (Newcastle), Lewsey (Wasps).
