JAMES Haskell and Matt Mullan have both retained their places in the England squad for the final autumn international against Australia.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster has opted to keep faith with the 23 man squad that overcame Samoa at Twickenham.

Flanker Haskell started Saturday's 28-9 while prop Mullan was introduced from the replacements' bench.

Lancaster hinted however he is likely to make changes to the side that faces the Australians on Saturday - meaning the Wasps duo could swap places on the bench.

He said: "There has been some strong competition for places throughout the whole series and, with our strength in depth increasing in many positions and key players to return from injury soon, we will be in good shape for 2015.

"It was great to get the win last week and the whole 23 did well so we want to give those guys another chance against an Australian team who will want to finish their season on a high."
