Matt Mullan (London Wasps) and Kyle Eastmond (Bath Rugby) will travel with the squad on Thursday afternoon as 24th and 25th men.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “Every member of the squad has contributed to the cause over the last seven weeks and those not involved this weekend deserve massive credit for the way they have trained and pushed hard for places. There will be opportunities down the line, not least on the tour to New Zealand, and they can further stake their claims for that trip with strong performances for their clubs.

“Manu trained well with us last week and today and is up to speed with the way we want to play. Alex Goode has done well for us off the bench and is naturally disappointed but we believe Manu, with the power and physicality he can bring, is the right choice to be included in the 23 for this game.”
