Bring on the Aussies....
From ITN: "England boss Clive Woodward has recalled Mike Tindall and dropped Mike Catt for Saturday's World Cup final clash with defending champions and hosts Australia at Sydney's Telstra Stadium.

Woodward, adopting a "horses for courses" selection policy, has named the same XV which beat the Wallabies 25-14 with three tries in Melbourne five months ago with the exception of Matt Dawson, who takes over from Kyran Bracken at scrum-half.

Tough-tackling centre Tindall was dropped in favour of his Bath club-mate Catt for last weekend's semi-final win over France.

But the 25-year-old Yorkshireman returns to Woodward's starting XV to face Eddie Jones' Wallabies as England bid to silence the critical Australian media by lifting the Webb Ellis trophy on Saturday. Catt returns to the bench."
