He was left out of the team that lost to France on the opening weekend due to an eye injury but did feature in the 13-6 win over Scotland.

Centres Henry Slade and Manu Tuilagi are both named in the squad as they continue to rehabilitate following injuries. Forward Courtney Lawes, who was rested for the training camp last week, has also been included.

Bath prop Beno Obano is recalled as a further back up for the missing Vunipola.
