Eddie Jones has named his squad to play Samoa in the final Test of the Old Mutual Wealth Series on Saturday (KO 3pm live on Sky Sports).
Jones has made nine changes to the starting line-up that beat Australia 30-6 last weekend at Twickenham Stadium.
George Ford (Leicester Tigers) and Chris Robshaw (Harlequins) are named as co-captains, a role they played in England’s Old Mutual Wealth Cup match against the Barbarians in May.
Robshaw moves to open side with Maro Itoje (Saracens) starting at blind side. Sam Simmonds (Exeter Chiefs) will make his first start for England at number 8 in the absence of Nathan Hughes (Wasps).

There are two changes in the front row with Ellis Genge (Leicester Tigers) and Jamie George (Saracens) replacing Mako Vunipola (Saracens) and Dylan Hartley (Northampton Saints). The England captain has been named as a finisher.
Charlie Ewels (Bath Rugby) will start alongside last weekend’s man of the match Joe Launchbury (Wasps) in the second row.
This weekend will see Alex Lozowski (Saracens) and Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs) as the centre combination with Mike Brown (Harlequins) returning to the starting 15 shirt after missing the Australia Test due to injury. Danny Care (Harlequins) will start his first Test of the series with Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers) named as a finisher.
