Gloucester's Andy Hazell is named on the bench for England for this weekend's RBS Six Nations clash with Italy, but James Simpson-Daniel misses out.
The 26 year-old open-side will continue to back-up a first choice back-row of Joe Worsley, Lewis and new captain Martin Corry.
Despite a number of impressive performances from James Simpson-Daniel for Gloucester in recent weeks, the 22 year-old misses out on the international scene, but will be determined to impress in Saturday's clash with Northampton.
England head coach Andy Robinson has made only one change to the England team to play Italy in the RBS 6 Nations at Twickenham on Saturday. England and Leeds Tykes full back Iain Balshaw starts, replacing Jason Robinson following his recent thumb injury.
Balshaw has 22 England caps and was part of England's World Cup squad in 2003. He recently scored a try in the England A victory over France A in Bath.
