6:48 pm on 4 November 2010

The former rugby league star Sonny Bill Williams will make his much anticpated All Blacks debut against England at Twickenham on Sunday morning.

Williams has been named at centre replacing Conrad Smith and joins second five Ma'a Nonu in the midfield.

In all coach Graham Henry's made four changes to the starting lineup which lost to Australia last weekend.

Winger Hosea Gear replaces the injured Corey Jane, while lock Sam Whitelock and halfback Alby Mathewson both get their first starts.
