Farrell and Retallick duel in 100th Tests

New Zealand lock Brodie Retallick and England captain Owen Farrell will play their 100th Tests for the teams when they meet for the first time in three years at Twickenham.

Retallick was recalled for Saturday's clash as soon as his suspension from the Japan Test last month was completed.

He's the 12th All Black to a century and only the second lock after captain Sam Whitelock.

Their 64th Test start together will eclipse the world record held by South Africa's Bakkies Botha and Victor Matfield.

The All Blacks made wholesale changes for the Test last Sunday against Scotland, which was won 31-23 at Murrayfield, and have reverted closer to the side which beat Wales 55-23 in Cardiff two weeks ago.

After impressing against Scotland on debut, Mark Telea has stayed on the right wing ahead of Sevu Reece in the only change to the backline in Cardiff.

Retallick has bumped Scott Barrett to the blindside flank and Shannon Frizell gone to the reserves.

A former world player of the year, Retallick was praised for his latest milestone by All Blacks coach Ian Foster.

"He has had a massive contribution to the legacy of this team over the last decade, during which he has inspired many," Foster said.

The All Blacks are on a six-win roll going into their last Test of what's been a testing year for them.

"We're in a good space. I like where our game's going. We've had a plan to try and grow some options to cement some combinations and to change a few things in our game."

Meanwhile, Farrell will become the third man to 100 England caps after Jason Leonard and Ben Youngs.

"We're very pleased for Owen," England coach Eddie Jones said. "He is an excellent player and competitor and deserving of every cap."

Farrell also has won six Test caps from three British and Irish Lions tours.
