Eddie Jones and Rassie Erasmus have named their teams to kick off the three Test summer series in South Africa this weekend.
Eddie Jones has raised eyebrows with the continued selection of Mike Brown on the wing with Elliot Daly playing at fullback. Jones has made no secret of his desire for England to take an improved approach in attack and has utilised Daly's superb footballing skills from 15 to do so.
Saracens 20-year-old Nick Isiekwe picks up a start in the second row with Joe Launchbury ruled out with a calf injury. The loss of Launchbury's 50+ caps will be of a significant loss to an England side currently under pressure for a victory in Johannesburg, but the highly skilled Isiekwe will not let the side down in his own performance, standing out as one of Saracens top performers as a teenager this season.
Hurricanes and New Zealand born backrow Brad Shields is included on the 19 jersey usually filled by a reserve second row, with Exeter Chiefs' second row Jonny Hill not included in the matchday 23. Wasps star halfback combo of Dan Robson and Danny Cipriani have also been excluded from the side to face Erasmus' Boks, with Ben Spencer and Piers Francis preferred in the 21 and 22 jersey's respectively.
Denny Solomona will look to prove himself worthy of a starting berth later in the tour in his bench appearance, looking to oust Mike Brown from the spot on the wing Solomona has had designs on for the last three months.
19-year-old Sale Sharks openside Tom Curry will look to continue his impressive form in the seven jersey after stellar performances int eh white jersey last summer and against the Barbarians a fortnight ago.
