Wasps lock retains England shirt
JOE Launchbury will start his second Test against New Zealand at Twickenham on Saturday.
He has kept his place in the second row after enjoying an impressive first start for his country against Australia last weekend.
James Haskell has again been named on the bench.
Launchbury, 21, was one of the few England players to enhance his reputation last weekend, when he was second in terms of carries, tackles and rucks hit.
He said: “I was fortunate enough to get a big chance and just tried to do as much as I could around the pitch to make my tackles and carry the ball as hard as I could.
“The physical challenge was massive and I really relished that.”
