IPSWICH-born Dan Hipkiss, who went to Hartismere High School and also played for Diss Rugby Club, has missed out on a place in the England rugby team to play South Africa in the World Cup final on Saturday.

Leicester centre Hipkiss, who came on as a replacement for the injured Josh Lewsey in last Saturday's semi-final win against France, will have to be content with a place on the bench.

Sale Sharks winger Mark Cueto will make his fourth start of the tournament, but his first since the pool victory over Tonga almost three weeks ago, in place of Lewsey.

Head coach Brian Ashton has otherwise retained the team and replacements' bench that were on duty against France.
