England winger Marland Yarde will sit out Saturday's second Test clash with Australia, despite scoring in last week's series opening win.

The Harlequins man crossed in the 39-28 triumph in Brisbane - his second score in as many international appearances - but has been replaced by Exeter Chief's Jack Nowell.

Yarde is not even on the bench - where clubmate Jack Clifford finds himself - for a match which could see head coach Eddie Jones' men claim a first series win down under in English rugby history.

Quins' Chris Robshaw will collect his 50th cap when he runs out on the blindside in Melbourne, Mike Brown starts at full back, while scrum half Danny Care is also on the bench.

“We’ve picked a 23 to get the job done in Melbourne,” said England head coach Eddie Jones.

“Throughout the week the players have shown they’re desperate to wear the red rose which meant some close calls on selection.   

“It’s a 23 that suits the way we want to play at AAMI Park. George and Owen playing together gives us two great kicking options and Jack is a high work-rate player.

"Jamie, Jack and Elliot have shown huge desire this week and deserve their spots on the bench.

“As soon as we came off the field in Brisbane our thoughts turned to Melbourne and I’m pleased with how we’ve prepared as the week has progressed.

"The players have recognised the importance of going up another level and have trained with a real intensity and purpose.

“We weren’t satisfied with last weekend’s performance and we know there’s lots to improve on, particularly aspects of our defence and breakdown work, which we’re confident we’ve remedied.

“We know the job isn’t done. We came here to win a Test series and that’s what we intend to do. Australia will try and throw everything at us on Saturday and we’ll be ready for the challenge.”
