Saracens back rower Billy Vunipola remains at No.8 in the England pack - in the backs Owen Farrell continues at fly-half, with Joel Tomkins and Chris Ashton retaining their places at outside centre and right wing respectively - Alex Goode has been named on the bench.

New recruit Marcelo Bosch will be facing his new Sarries teammates, as the 29 year-old has been named at outside centre for the Pumas.

Elsewhere, Kelly Brown captains Scotland against Japan at Murrayfield from openside flanker on Saturday, and Duncan Taylor's impressive early form has been rewarded, with the 24 year-old named on the bench.
