Exeter Chiefs flanker Tom Johnson is preparing to face Australia after being named in England's starting line-up for this weekend's match at Twickenham.

He will win his fifth international cap in the Cook Cup encounter, which is expected to be watched by a capacity crowd of 82,000.

It comes after Johnson scored his first international try in England's 54-12 victory over Fiji last weekend.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster's has made one change to his squad to face the Wallabies, with wing Chris Ashton recalled after a one-week suspension to take over on the right from Charlie Sharples, who in turn moves to the left in place of Ugo Monye.

The match kicks off at 2.30pm on Saturday and will be screened live on Sky Sports 1.
