England wing Jack Nowell will travel despite being hit down with appendicitis while also recovering from his long-standing ankle problem.
Nowell spent four days in an Italian hospital after having his appendix removed.
But he and the rest of the squad have now joined up in their Treviso base.
England remain confident he will be fit to play a role in Japan September.
“We have no worries there,” said assistant coach John Mitchell.
Mitchell says Nowell”requires a great meal” following his sickness, but has praised his mindset and vitality after returning .
“What I really respect about him would be when moving through his rehab and the illness, it does not appear to upset him in terms of the energy that he brings into the team,” he added.
“He is a good man and we really back Jack.”
Nowell hasn’t played because damaging ankle ligaments and has suffered a succession of setbacks in his own recovery.
“The foot is progressing and we expect him to be operating fairly soon,” Mitchell added.
“The [appendicitis] doesn’t help but we still have 20 times before the tournament begin and they will be exceedingly crucial for him”
Elsewhere, fellow wing Ruaridh McConnochie”includes a shot” of being matched to create his long-awaited debut against Italy at Newcastle on Friday, but middle Henry Slade stays a doubt with his knee issue.
But Mitchell says it is”no significant problem” if a few players board the airplane to Japan without being played some competitive golf inside their warm-up schedule.
“It’s all about managing players and how we train always gives us a very good indication of whether a player can manage the brink of a Test match,” he added.
Meanwhile, Mitchell states that the sport is”constantly changing and evolving” with several countries dropping experienced players from their squads on the eve of the championship.
England have dispensed with the likes of Mike Brown Chris Robshaw and Danny Care, Devin Toner has been overlooked by Ireland while Owen Franks has been left out by New Zealand, and Wales have jettisoned props Samson Lee and Rob Evans.
“This game is becoming stronger and quicker,” he clarified.
“It is not a personal decision on any of those men but unless you may evolve with the demands of the game then you’re going to get challenged at any stage.
“One thing this game has ever taught me is there’s not any location for self-preservation and it is a challenging environment.”
