Freddie Burns looks set to win his first England cap on Saturday at Twickenham in the final autumn international against world champions New Zealand.
The Gloucester fly-half will feature in the match-day 23 for the first time along with club-mate Ben Morgan after 11 players were sent back to their clubs for weekend action.
Two of those returnees include the Kingsholm duo of prop Nick Wood and wing Charlie Sharples, who are now available for Sunday's Saracens Vicarage Road arm-wrestle (3pm).
Burns has been in superb form for the Cherry and Whites this season recently picking up Premiership Player of the Month and heads the points scoring table with 143 from eight starts.
The 22-year-old gave the England management the perfect audition after producing a flawless performance in the 29-3 win over Sale at Kingsholm, contributing 19 points with the boot.
With Leicester stand-off Toby Flood ruled out with ligament damage in his big toe, Saracens' Owen Farrell is set to start at number ten against the All Blacks.
However, Burns would be the perfect game-changing replacement against the world's top ranked team should he feature off the bench and can stake a claim ahead of the Six Nations.
