Newcastle-bound forward utility Chris Heighington has been recalled to the England side for Saturday’s Rugby League World Cup 2017 final against Australia in Brisbane.

The 34-year-old veteran of 317 NRL appearances will play his seventh and most important match for his adopted league nation from the bench, with St Helens skipper James Roby elevated into the starting line-up to replace injured hooker Josh Hodgson in the only change to the England squad.

Heighington has not played for the Cup finalists since appearing off the bench in their opening two games against Australia in Melbourne and Lebanon in Sydney.

Australia v England, Saturday 2 December, Brisbane Stadium, 7pm EAST (8pm AEDT)

Match officials: Referee - Gerard Sutton; touch judges - Chris Kendall and Chris Butler; video referee: Ben Thaler
