12:35 pm on 5 November 2014

The Fijian-born winger Semesa Rokoduguni could make his debut against the All Blacks this weekend after being named in England's 23-man squad for their match at Twickenham this weekend.

The 27-year-old soldier is one of seven Bath players, including young back Anthony Watson who is named in his first England match-day squad, rewarded for a sparkling start to the season.

Rokoduguni has only played professional rugby for two years.

Uncapped Saracens lock George Kruis is included for the first time following Joe Launchbury's withdrawal from the squad with a neck injury.
