Farrell starts for England
29 Nov 2012
Owen Farrell will start at flyhalf in place of the injured Toby Flood as England make one change for Saturday’s Test New Zealand.
Flood’s toe injury, sustained against the Springboks last weekend, means 21-year-old Farrell, runs on for only the second time this year. Freddie Burns covers flyhalf from the bench, while in the only other change Courtney Lawes is included on the bench in place of Mouritz Botha
