World Cup heroes Jonny Wilkinson and Lawrence Dallaglio have been left out the England team to play South Africa in their Pool A match at the Stade de France on Friday.
Flyhalf Wilkinson missed the opening match against the United States with an ankle injury but Dallaglio played at number eight. Both men were in the winning World Cup final team four years ago.
Jason Robinson has been moved to fullback in place of Mark Cueto with Paul Sackey coming in on the left wing.
Nick Easter replaces Dallaglio and Martin Corry takes over from Joe Worsely at blindside flanker.
