Australia revert to initial lineup vs. England at World Cup

LONDON (AP) -- Australia coach Michael Cheika has reverted to the starting XV from the opening win over Fiji to take on England in Saturday's crucial Pool A match at the Rugby World Cup.

Stephen Moore returns as captain against England, which is coming off a loss to Wales and must win on Saturday or risk an early exit from the tournament. Cheika will confirm his reserves bench after training.

Cheika says: "I believe that this group has been really clear on where we must improve and the level we must be at to compete with England and we know that it's going to be a very tough challenge."
