Stuart Lancaster makes one change to his England side to face Australia by bringing wing Chris Ashton back into the fold for Ugo Monye.

England have recalled wing Chris Ashton to the side for their Autumn International bout against Australia following the Saracens player's ban.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster has made just one change to the team that defeated Fiji 54-12 last weekend as Ugo Monye makes way.

Ashton has grabbed a place back in the squad, which has pushed Charlie Sharples over to the left, following his one-match suspension.

Meanwhile, Australia head into Saturday's match on the back of a 33-6 defeat to France.

England team to play Australia:

Alex Goode, Chris Ashton, Manusamoa Tuilagi, Brad Barritt, Charlie Sharples, Toby Flood, Danny Care, Joe Marler, Tom Youngs, Dan Cole, Tom Palmer, Geoff Parling, Tom Johnson, Chris Robshaw, Thomas Waldrom

Replacements: David Paice, David Wilson, Mako Vunipola, Joe Launchbury, Tom Wood, Ben Youngs, Owen Farrell, Mike Brown
