Luke Cowan-Dickie, who returned to England for family reasons on Tuesday evening, will re-join the squad in Paris on Friday with Jack Singleton standing down from his earlier call-up.

Eddie Jones said: “The Guinness Six Nations for us is all about raising the standards in terms of the way we prepare, tactically and physically how we play the game, and the way we come together off the field.

“But our first task is beating France in France and that is the only game we need to worry about. We will begin our preparations in Portugal, get a bit of sun, some warm conditions and get ourselves physically and mentally right for the game.
