Lawes was one of Johnson’s top performers in the autumn internationals but has been on the sidelines for almost two months, leaving the door open for Louis Deacon to excel in his absence.

England team manager Johnson could have a further selection of headache with Tom Croft also ready to return.

“I feel like I am up to speed – I’m a bit tired but I feel good.”
