England have added Sale's New Zealand-born lock Michael Paterson to their squad ahead of Tuesday's match against the Crusaders.

Paterson featured for England against the Barbarians and the management have called him into the party ahead of their next game on Tuesday. Paterson was born in Christchurch but qualifies for England through his grandfather and he may yet get a chance to play against the Crusaders on Tuesday, a team he represented for three years.

"We wanted some second row cover and with Michael having trained with us leading up to the Barbarians game and knowing our systems it made sense to call on him as he was in Christchurch visiting family," Stuart Lancaster said. "He trained well with us this morning and will be in contention for selection for what is an important match against the Crusaders."
