Ben Youngs returns to the England team for Saturday's QBE International against Samoa at Twickenham.

The Leicester Tigers scrum-half makes his 41st Test appearance, partnering former club colleague George Ford at half-back, after coming off the bench in the opening two games of the series against New Zealand and South Africa.
Owen Farrell switches to inside centre while James Haskell and Ben Morgan come into the back row and Rob Webber starts at hooker.
England versus Samoa is 7pm kick-off and is shown live on Sky Sports.
