England have named their team for the Six Nations Grand Slam decider against Wales at the Millennium Stadium with Owen Farrell back at flyhalf.

The Saracen takes over at fly-half and will be joined at scrum-half by Ben Youngs, while Leicester Tigers team-mate Toby Flood and Danny Care (Harlequins) will be among the replacements.

There are two changes to the pack that started against Italy with Joe Marler (Harlequins) replacing Mako Vunipola (Saracens) at loose-head prop and Tom Croft (Leicester Tigers) starting at blindside flanker in place of James Haskell (London Wasps).

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "We have come a long way through the (Autumn Internationa) series and the Six Nations and we want to finish well on what will be a fantastic occasion in Cardiff. It will be a great experience for our English team. "

"Every single player, whether they are in the 23 or not this Saturday, has contributed to getting us in this position and they should be proud of that.

"The support of the country has been great throughout the tournament and I am sure they will be right behind us come 5 o'clock."
