Parramatta Eels forward Peni Terepo has been named to return from an ankle injury to Tonga's line up for Saturday's Rugby League World Cup semi-final in Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium against England.

Terepo has been named on the bench, in a Tongan line up that also includes Blue & Gold players Michael Jennings and Manu Ma'u.

England have gone with the same 17 that were successful against Papua New Guinea in Melbourne but made two changes on their reserves list. Jonny Lomax and Scott Taylor replace Stefan Ratchford and George Williams in the four listed reserves.

In the other semi-final, to be played in Brisbane on Friday between Australia and Fiji, there have been no changes to the top 17 in either side.

The Australians have chosen the same line-up that disposed of Samoa 46-0 in the quarter-final in Darwin but have made two changes to their reserves list with Tom Trbojevic and Josh Mansour replacing Cameron Munster and Ben Hunt.

The Fijians, taking on the Kangaroos for a third time in World Cup semi-finals, have again selected their top outfit with no changes throughout their 21-man squad after success in Auckland against the Kiwis.
