SAINTS pair James Roby and Alex Walmsley will come off the bench in England's quarter final clash with Papua New Guinea in Melbourne on Sunday.

Coach has opted to start with Josh Hodgson despite Roby's fine display last week against France.

Walmsley will again bring impact off the bench in the knockout tie against the unbeaten Kumuls.

There is still no place for Jonny Lomax, who has been troubled with a calf injury.

Second rower John Bateman is preferred to Saints' Mark Percival in the centres.

England: Widdop; McGillvary, Watkins, Bateman, Hall; Brown, Gale; Hill, Hodgson, Graham, S. Burgess, Whitehead, O'Loughlin. Subs: Walmsley, T. Burgess, Currie, Roby.

Res: Heighington, Percival, Ratchford, Williams.
