Wasps' Elliot Daly and Saracens' Will Fraser and Joel Tomkins have been promoted from the England Saxons and linked up with the rest of the squad at Pennyhill Park base on Sunday night.
Centre Daly will provide training cover for Ben Foden, who is on a post-match recovery programme after ankle trouble, while Fraser comes in as cover for Ben Morgan, as the No.8 continues his rehabilitation from an ankle injury.
