All eyes will be fixed on Lee Dickson when England take to the Twickenham pitch for their opening autumn Test against Australia on Saturday.
The Northampton Saints scrum-half has been given the nod to start ahead of Ben Youngs, who is on the bench, after an impressive start to the season.
Dickson, who has made nine previous appearances for the Red Rose, started both of England Test wins against the Pumas during their summer tour whilst Youngs away on British and Irish Lions duty.
When Northampton snapped up Samoa international Kahn Fotulai'i before the new season, Dickson appeared to be fighting a battle just to retain his spot in his club side.
But the scrum-half's hard-working attitude has paid dividends - and he's been the standout English No9 in the Aviva Premiership this season, with his side losing just once.
What will the Saints man bring to the role?
The 28-year-old has slick hands and will be able to get the ball quickly to his fly-half, Farrell - Youngs has been criticised for his failure to act promptly in the past.
So, it appears England head coach Stuart Lancaster wants his Red Rose side to play with pace and tempo, with Billy Twelvetrees providing an exciting option at No12.
"I'm thrilled to bits. I've had a good start of the season with Northampton," Dickson told Sky Sports.
"Coming here I've spoken to Stuart a couple of times about being on form coming into these Autumn internationals.
"Back at the club I've had a good pre-season and started the season well so it's been brilliant to get that nod and I'm really looking forward to it."
It's now up to Dickson to repay Lancaster's faith and show that he's ready to be England's premier scrum-half.
