Eddie Jones must feed the speed at Twickenham this weekend when his English charges look to secure back-to-back victories over Rassie Erasmus's Springboks.
Jones, 58, reportedly described his new look pack to BBC reporter and his namesake Chris Jones as a side of "goers" in the absence of first-choice power players such as the Vunipola brothers and Courtney Lawes.
The pack named earlier today has included a host of forwards that offer a notably heightened level of dynamism across the turf. Even if they do lack the punching power England's early success under Jones was built upon.
Exeter Chiefs loosehead prop Alec Hepburn, Harlequins and Lions tighthead Kyle Sinckler, former Hurricanes captain Brad Shields, Newcastle Falcons backrow Mark Wilson and Sale Sharks talented young openside Tom Curry all start, presenting a stark difference from the side that started the first Test of the summer's South African tour.

Over the last two seasons, England have struggled to make headway when stripped of one or both of the barreling Vunipola brothers, often losing the battle of the game line; to ruinous effect.
With injuries and suspensions forcing his hand in selection this week, Jones must turn to a wider, faster game plan if he wishes to overturn South Africa and reclaim some respect following the disappointing tour defeat in June.
When Exeter's dynamo of a number eight Sam Simmonds - currently sidelined with a long-term knee injury - was placed at the back of England's scrum in place of the injured Billy Vunipola and Nathan Hughes, the free-scoring Premiership loose forward was not employed in a manner that suited his explosive qualities.
With the majority of today's pack leaning closer to the Simmonds way of playing than the Vunipola's brand of rugby, England's forwards must look to embrace the impeccable Twickenham surface and look to move around a muscular Springbok forward unit.
It is not just upfront Jones and his men must look to up the tempo, the new look backline with Owen Farrell returned to his rightful position of fly-half must also do their part in improving their brand of attacking rugby. The home side must strive to exhibit a performance akin to the offerings displayed by Wales during the latest Six Nations, who took a significant step in improving the pace of their game.
With Farrell pulling the strings from ten, the return of bruising Worcester Warriors centre Ben Te'o at inside centre alongside playmaking midfield partner Henry Slade, there is ample opportunity to enhance England's attacking game.
With the permanent appointments of Scott Wisemantel as attack coach and Elliot Daly at fullback, there is plenty of scope for an upgraded in potential to pierce opposing defence.
Te'o and Slade may not offer the same running threat as fit-again Leicester Tigers centre Manu Tuilagi or injured Bath centre Jonathan Joseph, but the duo can combine with Farrell to open up space and distribute to the likes of Daly from fullback and wingers Jonny May and Jack Nowell.
While I remain sceptic over the decision to start Te'o this weekend after a criminal lack of game time so far this season - having played just half an hour during his return from injury against the Ospreys - the former Rugby League international's sheer presence combined with playmakers Farrell and Slade should be enough to consolidate and unleash England's dynamic forwards or back three.
This weekend's England side are not built for power, they are not built for the pitbull-like style of rugby Jones strived to reestablish within this side when he first took over three long years ago.
We may not know how much of a difference this latest squad selection and the appointments of Wisemantel, John Mitchell and Will Carling will make, but if there is little variation in England's game plan this weekend Jones may find himself under even more pressure while the fans sit in gross dissatisfaction.
