England today added two players to the squad preparing for the RBS 6 Nations match against Italy at Twickenham on Saturday.
London Irish prop Alex Corbisiero comes in for Tim Payne (London Wasps) who has returned to his club for treatment to a sternum injury.
Gloucester Rugby wing James Simpson-Daniel has been added to the group training at Pennyhill Park as cover for Nick Abendanon (toe). Bath Rugby full back Abendanon remains with the squad for further assessment.
England flanker James Haskell insists he will be pushing as hard as possible to be back from a toe injury in time to make his case for a spot in Eddie Jones' side looking to defend their RBS 6 Nations title next year.
