Balshaw picks up injury so Cohen returns

England’s preparations for South Africa where tey hope to end a run of defeats has been hit by the loss of fullback Iain Balshaw who was forced to withdraw with a calf injury.

Northampton’s Ben Cohen has been recalled to the team and will play on the left wing while Josh Lewsey moves from wing to full-back.

Although Cohen played fairly well in last week’s match he was dropped by England for this match.

Cohen needs just one more try to go clear in second place in England’s all-time try-scoring list.
