Cokanasiga (Bath) and Shields (Wasps) will remain with the squad to continue their reconditioning until Thursday when the team travel to Dublin. Te’o (Worcester Warriors), who has a side strain, will also stay in camp while the team is in Portugal.
Scrum-half Dan Robson is in line for his international debut having been retained in the 25.
Owen Farrell is also included having recovered from a hand injury, with Manu Tuilagi poised for a start at centre due to Te’o’s absence.
“We have Brad Shields, Joe Cokanasiga and Ben Te’o who are not far away from where we want them to be but in a game of this magnitude we need everyone to be 100% so they will stay with us and continue to rehab,” said scrum coach Neal Hatley. “The plan is to have them all fit for France.
“Ben suffered a small side strain in training, he is doing his rehab, is not far away, but as I say everyone needs to be fully fit.”
