England coach Eddie Jones has made some significant changes to his squad to face Argentina at Twickenham this coming weekend.
A notable absentee is last week’s fullback Alex Goode, who will drop out of the squad entirely. Regular fullback Mike Brown is retained.
Tom Wood and Jonny May have also returned to the squad after not featuring in last week’s 23.
Bath lock Charlie Ewels also keeps his place in the squad and is likely to win his second cap from the bench against the Pumas.

Saracens lock George Kruis comes back into the squad having recovered from his ankle injury that has seen him miss the first two autumn internationals.
Interestingly, Exeter Chiefs utility back Henry Slade is included as well.
The 23 for the Argentina match is likely to resemble closely the team that took on South Africa two weeks ago, although Joe Launchbury is banned for the next two matches and so a new lock pairing will feature.
