Freddie Burns (Gloucester), double try-scoring replacement from the game against Ireland returns to the starting line-up, slotting in at full back, with Rory Clegg (Harlequins) starting at fly half.
Marcus Watson of London Irish who had to leave the field with a hamstring injury against Argentina, is fully recovered and returns to the left wing. On the other flank Sam Smith of Harlequins retains his place, while Christian Wade (London Wasps) is rested.
Also rested are the IRB JWC's most prolific scorer Tom Homer of London Irish and skipper Jacob Rowan (Leeds Carnegie), who hands the armband to hooker Jamie George of Saracens.
