Andy Farrell has said that Billy Twelvetrees has earned his recall to the England team for their Autumn International against Australia this weekend.
Farrell told Sky Sports News: "Billy's been a part of this group for a good few years now and he's had a few things to go back to Gloucester and work on and he's certainly done that.
"He's an integral part of what we're doing with the England set-up, he knows our system inside out. He's been very positive in the last couple of weeks when he's not been selected and he deserves his chance.
"Obviously [Owen Farrell is] disappointed, like anyone who gets a little bit demoted, but team comes first and he's dusted himself down towards the end of the week and there was a massive team focus throughout the squad of making sure that everyone puts their best performance in for England this weekend."
England picked up their first win of the Autumn with a 28-9 victory over Samoa last weekend.
