Fantastic five flying the England flag for Bath Rugby

13 June 2013

Kyle Eastmond will win his first starting cap for England as he partners new signing Jonathan Joseph in the centres for the final test match against Argentina on Saturday, kick-off 20.10 BST.

Rob Webber, David Wilson and Dave Attwood all retain their places in the starting line-up after impressing in the 32-3 win in Salta a week ago.

England are bidding to secure a first series win in Argentina since 1981, when Bill Beaumont's tourists drew the first and won the second of their two Tests.

Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "It is great to reward young players who have pushed through this season. They have worked hard to earn their opportunities on this tour.

"This is a young England side which made a very positive start to the series in Salta. But we expect Argentina to come back very strongly in front of a big home crowd. It's a great challenge and one we are all looking forward to."
