England centre Ollie Lawrence will miss Saturday's Autumn Nations Cup clash against Wales due to a hip injury
The 21-year-old made his debut in England's Six Nations title-clinching win against Italy.
Lawrence has enjoyed an encouraging start to his international career and was given his most prominent role yet in the win over Ireland at Twickenham.
"Ollie has huge potential as a centre. He is very talented in terms of running onto the ball and he has got exceptional ability to line break." There are four changes to the squad of 25 from the Ireland game, with Anthony Watson and Joe Marler both returning from injury.
Watson comes into the squad for Gloucester wing Ollie Thorley, while Marler replaces Lawrence as Jones bolsters his pack with an additional forward and one back fewer.
Wasps flanker Jack Willis is retained as Lewis Ludlam is sent back to Northampton and the final change sees fit-again Luke Cowan-Dickie return to the squad in place of Tom Dunn
