Rugby - England drop Care, Lozowski and Mercer for Australia test


LONDON (Reuters) - Scrumhalf Danny Care has paid the price for England's poor first-half against Japan, dropped from a 28-man squad named by coach Eddie Jones for the final November test against Australia.

Ben Youngs is the probable starting scrumhalf, with Richard Wigglesworth providing back-up. Care, who scored England's opening try in his first start since March, was replaced by Wigglesworth an hour into Saturday's contest.
