Jones recalls Care as England scrum-half

England coach Eddie Jones has made three changes for the final Test match of the Australian tour and recalled scrum-half Danny Care, 35, who replaces Jack van Poortvliet. The other two changes will take place up front, with the recalls of Ollie Chessum (Leicester) and Lewis Ludlam (Northampton). They replace Maro Itoje and Sam Underhill, who returned home after a concussion last Saturday.
