Sheridan's absence makes space for London Irish prop Alex Corbisiero, who is now set to make his Test debut against the Italians at Twickenham.

"Sheridan reported soreness in his back following training on Thursday and the decision for him to make way was made after a review by the England medical team this morning," the RFU said on Friday.
