England Team Manager Martin Johnson has made two changes to the team to play Wales in the RBS 6 Nations at the Millennium Stadium this Saturday (5.30pm).
Gloucester Rugby centre Mike Tindall is fit and takes over from Jamie Noon while London Wasps' Joe Worsley will start in place of Steffon Armitage at open-side flanker.
Armitage made his international debut in last Saturday's 36-11 win over Italy but has now dropped out of the match squad altogether.
Worsley who made his name as a blind-side flanker as Wasps became champions of England and then Europe, has been handed the number seven jersey after England lost Tom Rees, Lewis Moody and Michael Lipman to injury.
Worsley played for England at open-side in the World Cup warm-up internationals against Wales and France in the summer of 2007.
There is no place in England's squad for Danny Cipriani, who was left out by Johnson last week on the premise he needed game time but was then denied a chance to impress when the England Saxons match against Ireland A was postponed due to the weather.
With Harlequins' Danny Care still out of contention due to injury, London Irish and England Saxons scrum half Paul Hodgson has been called up to the bench in place of England newcomer Ben Foden. Toby Flood (Leicester Tigers) is also named among the replacements.
Wales will name thier starting lineup on Thursday.
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
Jason Harries is targeting a first win on the World Series circuit this season with Wales. The series returns to action this weekend in Dubai where Harries is part of a team hoping to build from its efforts in round one in October.
Wales skipper Jevon Groves says his side have addressed a few points from Gold Coast and aim to 'hit the ground running' in the next two rounds of the World Series, kicking off with this weekend in Dubai before heading off to South Africa next week.
Wales Sevens manager Steff Thomas is hopeful his side can build from a quarter-final spot in the opening round of the World Series in Australia when his side take part in the forthcoming double header in Dubai and South Africa.
