Gloucester wing James Simpson-Daniel looks to have missed out due to pending shoulder surgery, but England will still travel with a strong blend of youth and experience.
Among those players with points to prove will be 65 times capped Wasps flanker Joe Worsley, who missed the entire Six Nations campaign.
And his injury-hit Wasps team-mate Tom Rees must look to put recent injury problems behind him and mount a challenge for the number seven shirt currently worn by Bath’s Michael Lipman.
There is also a welcome recall for Gloucester centre Mike Tindall, whose season appeared to be over after he was seriously hurt during England’s Six Nations opener against Wales at Twickenham.
Tindall spent three days in the intensive care unit of a London hospital with problems to his liver and internal bleeding.
But he returned to action in Gloucester’s European Cup quarter-final defeat against Munster last month, and he would undoubtedly have been among the captaincy candidates considered by Johnson.
Of the uncapped brigade, much interest will revolve around the selection of Hartley.
The New Zealand-born prospect was on course to make England’s World Cup squad last year, but he was cited and then banned for 26 weeks after being found guilty of gouging during a club game.
Despite playing the whole of this season in National League One with the Saints, he has maintained a high level of form and is likely to gain a place in England’s Test 22 for the All Blacks opener on June 14.
Ojo produced an outstanding try-scoring display during Irish’s European Cup semi-final defeat against Toulouse last month, while Care inspired Harlequins to the brink of this season’s Premiership play-offs.
England fly to New Zealand on June 2 without Johnson, who is staying at home to be with his pregnant wife, with the Rugby Football Union’s elite rugby director Rob Andrew taking on tour manager responsibilities.
