England have called up Northampton front-row Paul Doran-Jones ahead of their clash against Wales next week.
The 26-year-old former Gloucester tighthead is a temporary replacement for Bath's David Wilson, who has a jaw injury - sustained in the West Country side's win over the Exeter Chiefs on February 5.
Doran-Jones is among 31 players training until Thursday of this week at England's Bagshot base in Surrey. The Saints prop has been vying with Brian Mujati for a spot at Franklin's Gardens and already has three caps to his name.
England and Wales have both collected a maximum four points from their first two Six Nations games, but Wales have a narrowly superior points difference.
