PAUL SACKEY of London Wasps will win his first cap after replacing Mark Cueto (Sale Sharks) on the right wing for Sunday's Investec Challenge match against New Zealand at Twickenham (3.30pm).
 
Cueto has been ruled out after the left ankle injured against Ospreys 11 days ago failed to recover sufficiently.
 
The replacements bench includes Sackey's Wasps team-mate Mark Van Gisbergen, called up to the squad this morning, while flanker Tom Rees was not considered because of a left shoulder injury.
 
Replacements:
16. Lee Mears (Bath Rugby)
17. Stuart Turner (Sale Sharks)
18. Chris Jones (Sale Sharks)
19. Magnus Lund (Sale Sharks)
20. Peter Richards (Gloucester Rugby)
21. Andy Goode (Leicester Tigers)
22. Mark Van Gisbergen (London Wasps)
 
Ends.
