England have named Jack Nowell and Mako Vunipola on the bench to face Argentina as the Lions pair prepare to make their first appearance of the World Cup.

Winger Nowell has not played since the Premiership final in June, while Vunipola has clocked up just 17 minutes of game time since May.

As key senior players, Eddie Jones was prepared to carry the injured pair to Japan and his gamble has paid off as they return to action at the Tokyo Stadium.

Jones has named a loaded team for the Test at Tokyo Stadium – with George Kruis replacing Courtney Lawes as the only change to his gun XV that started the opening game against Tonga.

Victory for England will book their place in the quarter-finals with a game to spare and Jones has kept faith in the midfield combination of George Ford, Owen Farrell and Manu Tuilagi.
