Ben Foden has been named in the England team to face New Zealand powerhouse Crusaders tomorrow.
Chester-born Foden will start on the wing at AMI Stadium in Christchurch as England look to rebuild morale following successive test defeats to the All Blacks.
Foden, 28, linked up with the England squad after helping his club Northampton Saints win their first ever Premiership title.
His club commitments meant he was not considered for the first test in Auckland, which Stuart Lancaster's men lost 20-15, and he missed out on selection for the second test in Dunedin on Saturday, which the All Blacks won 28-27.
Former Chester RUFC star Foden, who grew up in Cholmondeley, has now been handed a chance to impress, albeit on the wing with Alex Goode named as fullback.
He will be keen to impress heading into the series finale in Hamilton this weekend. Although he will be hard pressed to displace first choice fullback Mike Brown, Foden might be able to claim a spot on the wing.
Head coach Lancaster said: "This is a really important match for us in terms of the development of our squad.
"We wanted this game to test ourselves against a top Super 15 side and with a large squad out here we are hoping to create opportunities for everyone to lay down a marker on this tour.
"We can see by how they have trained that they can’t wait to pull on an England shirt tomorrow.
"We are treating this like an additional Test and I know the Crusaders will be highly motivated to put in a good performance on the back of their Super 15 form."
England will be supporting the rebuilding of Christchurch by wearing the Canterbury Rugby Earthquake Relief Charitable Trust logo on their playing jerseys and donating 10 specially embroidered signed shirts to be auctioned off in aid of the fund.
