Jonathan Joseph was withdrawn from the squad following a calf injury while Joe Marchant and Jacob Umaga were included after recovering from their respective injuries.

The game will also see a return of 2,000 spectators in the stadium following the latest government guidelines with the Rugby Football Union planning 400 seats as a gift to NHS Workers while 600 to be given to players' families, local rugby clubs and sponsors and the remaining 1000 will be sold to the fans.
