Anthony Allen, James Simpson-Daniel and Chris Robshaw have been called up to the England squad as injury cover ahead of the clash with South Africa on Saturday.
Allen and Simpson-Daniel replace London Wasps centres Riki Flutey (calf injury) and Dominic Waldouck (posterolateral disc bulge), who are both undergoing rehabilitation with their club under the Wasps and England medical teams.
Robshaw is cover for Joe Worsley (London Wasps) who has a cheek injury that is being monitored by the England medics.
