ENGLAND coach Clive Woodward has been forced to make four changes to his England XV squad after four players - including captain Phil Vickery - withdrew through injury.
Gloucester prop Vickery damaged his ribs in his club's 49-13 Heineken Cup victory against French side Bourgoin on Saturday while Lewis Moody missed Leicester's win over Gwent Dragons with a foot problem.
Bath's Iain Balshaw and Harlequins' Mike Worsley also picked up injuries at the weekend and have been removed from the party to face New Zealand Barbarians in the Zurich World Champions Challenge fixture at Twickenham on Saturday.
World Cup winners Ben Cohen (Northampton) and Trevor Woodman (Gloucester) have been brought into the squad along with Leicester's Martin Corry and Bath's South African-born England under-21 international Matt Stevens.
That takes the number of members of the World Cup final starting line-up included in the squad to six - one more than before yesterday's changes.
Wing Jason Robinson, centre Mike Tindall and hooker Steve Thompson are the other World Cup final starters who will be present.
Saracens' Richard Hill will captain the side for the first time in the absence of Vickery, who was "bitterly disappointed" to miss out.
A sold-out Twickenham will not see World Cup heroes Jonny Wilkinson, Martin Johnson or Lawrence Dallaglio, but the entire World Cup squad will be present to parade the Webb Ellis Trophy immediately after the match.
