England have added London Irish prop Alex Corbisiero and Gloucester wing James Simpson-Daniel to their squad for Saturday's RBS 6 Nations fixture with Italy.

Corbisiero has replaced the Wasps loose-head Tim Payne, who has returned to his club for treatment for an sternum injury.

Simpson-Daniel has also linked up with the senior squad as cover for Bath's Nick Abendanon, who is struggling with a toe problem.

England opened their Six Nations campaign with a 26-19 win over Wales in Cardiff and welcome Italy to Twickenham looking to maintain their 100 percent record in Tests against the Azzurri.
