England prop Andrew Sheridan will miss Saturday's game against New Zealand as he continues to receive treatment on a neck injury.

Sheridan picked up the injury in the defeat to Australia 10 days ago and also missed last weekend's heavy loss to South Africa.

Gloucester prop Nick Wood has been called in to the senior squad from England Saxons as cover.

Coach Martin Johnson also has injury concerns over inside centre Riki Flutey, who was replaced after 32 minutes against the Springboks with a hamstring problem.

Yesterday Ben Kay was called into the squad as cover for Tom Palmer, who is undergoing treatment for a tight right calf.
