Johnson urges England to make early impact
Andrew Sheridan has replaced Tim Payne at loose-head prop in England's starting XV for Saturday's match against New Zealand at Twickenham.
Sheridan is the only change to the side which beat Australia in Sydney in June.
Hooker Steve Thompson held off the challenge of Dylan Hartley, who missed the summer tour with injury.
And captain Lewis Moody, who suffered a career-threatening eye injury last month and needed stitches in a head wound last week, is fit.
There are two uncapped players on the bench in the shape of Gloucester lock David Attwood and Leeds flanker Hendre Fourie, who come in for Simon Shaw and James Haskell.
The All Blacks have won their last eight matches against England and are seeking another clean sweep of the home nations, with games against Scotland, Ireland, and Wales to come.
Sheridan confident after injury lay-off
And while the rest of the world has been getting excited about the free-flowing, high scoring rugby that has characterised the Tri-Nations, England defence coach Mike Ford is determined to keep the game tight.
"Three of those [Tri-Nations] matches averaged 77 points and to me that isn't Test rugby," he said.
"Even on Saturday, which was a fantastic game [when Australia beat New Zealand 26-24], there were 50 points.
"We want to make this a good old-fashioned rugby game. Whatever you think that means, we know what we think it means and we're pretty confident with what we can do defensively.
"We have a 'no excuse' mentality. It's never a case of us saying: 'They've just scored one so we'll go back and score one at the other end'."
