Ellis Genge, George Ford, Jonny May, Manu Tuilagi and Ben Youngs, who were all involved in the win over Ireland last weekend, remain with the squad.

In addition, Alex Mitchell of Northampton will join up with the squad and George Furbank will be in camp for rehabilitation. Mako Vunipola and Luke Cowan-Dickie are not included for family reasons.
