Cape Town - Elliot Daly is set to start at outside centre for England in Saturday’s Test against the Springboks at Twickenham.

According to The Mirror, the five-Test capped Daly is likely to replace Jonathan Joseph, who suffered a groin injury.

Joseph has been a common fixture of coach Eddie Jones's teams this year but looks set to be replaced by the London Wasps centre.

Assistant coach Neal Hatley said that the rest of the squad was healthy.

"Everyone is fit, everyone is raring to go," Hatley said.

Meanwhile Hatley also said they are working on their set-pieces for the clash.

"It will be a testing day from a scrum point of view... We worked hard in Portugal with our set-piece and had a good session on Tuesday, so we’re really pleased with where we are."
