Wasps centre Daly injured his knee during his club’s weekend game and the Premiership side said the 25-year-old was expected to be out for two to three weeks, sidelining him for at least two of England’s three tests.

Rokoduguni, an active Lance Corporal in the British Army, has scored seven tries in as many Premiership games for Bath this campaign, earning him the chance to win his third cap for Eddie Jones’s side.

The Fiji-born 30-year-old made his England debut in 2014 and last played against his home nation in last year’s November internationals.

England host Argentina at Twickenham on Nov. 11, followed by games against Australia on Nov. 18 and Samoa on Nov. 25.
