Gloucester Rugby prop Paul Doran-Jones will make his second start for the England Saxons in Treviso against Italy A on Sunday.
Head Coach Stuart Lancaster has made nine changes to the starting line up that impressed against Ireland A last Sunday with a 17-13 victory. Doran-Jones retains his place as starting tight head prop whilst Gloucester team mate Dave Attwood is named amongst the replacements.
Danny Cipriani (London Wasps) returns taking the role of full back whilst last weekend's try scorer Shane Geraghty (Northampton Saints) retains the number 10 shirt.
Bath prop David Flatman starts for the first time since last June's Churchill Cup and Leed's flanker Hendre Fourie makes his debut alongside Chris Robshaw (Harlequins) and last week's man of the match Phil Dowson (Northampton Saints).
Jon Clarke (Northampton Saints) joins Miles Benjamin (Worcester Warriors) in the back line whilst Newcastle's Micky Young is promoted from the bench to start at scrum half.
"The guys put in a great performance last weekend and we hope to back that up with another impressive display against Italy A on Sunday."
"We've made quite a few changes to the squad that beat Ireland A last weekend which gives opportunities to the new guys coming in."
"Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers) and Luke Narraway (Gloucester Rugby) have returned to their clubs whilst Hendre and Rob Vickers (Newcastle Falcons) have come in as injury cover for Andy Saull (Saracens) and David Paice (London Irish)."
"Noah Cato (Saracens) and Nick Wood (Gloucester Rugby) will travel with us as the 23rd and 24th man."
