REVEALED | England set to make two changes for semi-final against All Blacks

England head coach Eddie Jones is set to recalled fly-half George Ford to his starting team for the World Cup semi-final against New Zealand, according to reports.

The Aussie is set to make one change with the Leicester fly-half coming in for Henry Slade, meaning Manu Tuilagi switches to 13 and Owen Farrell reverts to inside centre.

It’s also reported that George Kruis, who is England’s premier lineout operator, will also come into the run-on team with the Aussie saving battering ram Courtney Lawes for later in the game.

Meanwhile, Jonny May has been racing to overcome a hamstring injury and was wearing a muscle stimulation device on Thursday. 

England have lost 15 of their last 16 games dating back to 2003 against New Zealand, who were last beaten in a World Cup-tie in 2007.
