James Simpson-Daniel admits England's two-Test series against New Zealand is "a brilliant chance" for him to stake his place in the team.

Just seven months after suffering the agony of World Cup rejection, the Gloucester wing is set for more pain.

This time though, it's the so-called 'House of Pain' - New Zealand's Carisbrook fortress in Dunedin - where England will tackle the All Blacks on Saturday.

With World Cup star Jason Robinson granted a rare summer off, Simpson-Daniel is favourite to fill the vacancy when Woodward announces his starting line-up on Tuesday morning.

A reshuffled back three should see Josh Lewsey moved from wing duties into Robinson's number 15 jersey, allowing Simpson-Daniel an opportunity few people will begrudge him.

Since making his Test debut against the All Blacks at Twickenham in November 2002, he has endured a rollercoaster ride highlighted by glimpses of his talent, but marred through injury and illness.
