Courtney Lawes has been confirmed in England's 23-man squad to face New Zealand on Saturday in one of two changes.
The second rower returned to action for Northampton last weekend after being laid low by a knee injury and is now back in England colours. Mouritz Botha is the man to miss out.
In the only other change to the squad that lost to South Africa, fly-half Freddie Burns comes in for Toby Flood who is ruled out due to a toe injury.
Coach Stuart Lancaster will name his starting XV on Thursday.
