Prop Ben Moon replaces Alec Hepburn in the front row and flanker Sam Underhill starts instead of the injured Tom Curry as boss Eddie Jones makes three changes from the side that beat South Africa.
There is no place for Manu Tuilagi in the matchday squad.Despite his side starting as underdogs, Jones insists the expectation remains the same as ever."The expectation for Saturday is no different to any other Test match," he said.It is the first meeting between the two teams since the All Blacks secured a narrow 24-21 win at Twickenham in November 2014. In total, New Zealand have won 32 of 40 Tests against England.Their last defeat to England came in December 2012, when Ashton scored a try in a 38-21 win for the hosts at Twickenham.
