Four Gloucester players have been named in the 30-man England training squad for the next RBS Six Nations clash against Ireland next week.
Henry Paul, Phil Vickery, Andy Hazell and Andy Gomarsall will team up with Andy Robinson's squad next week after the weekend's clash at home to Bath.
There are four changes to Robinson's original squad, including a call up for 24 year-old Leicester Tigers fly half Andy Goode.
Goode took part in England training last month in Leeds and Loughborough and impressed in the England 'A' victory over France 'A' in Bath last week, where he kicked 10 of England's 30 points.
Robinson said: "Andy has been knocking on the England door recently, with his good form for Leicester and I felt he impressed last week in his A game performance. So he earns his selection to the squad for what will be a massively important game against Ireland.
"Julian White has not yet recovered from the neck injury he picked up in the Wales game but I'm sure he will return to play an important part in our games later in the championship."

It's the first Gloucester-Bristol derby at Kingsholm in over eight years this Saturday (kick off 4:30pm) and, previewing the game with the local media this week, Defence Coach Jonny Bell stressed that, with both teams in the bottom half of the table, they both need the points.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester front rower John Afoa knows the challenge ahead this week against Bristol, and calls on the Cherry and Whites to make the most of home advantage as a determined squad look to bounce back from a narrow loss to Saracens.
Tom Savage speaks to GRTV and the local media as Gloucester went down by 24-20 at Saracens on Sunday afternoon. The second row was disappointed with the result, despite a strong showing from the hosts.
Speaking immediately after the game, skipper Willi Heinz thought that Gloucester had executed their game plan reasonably well and competed hard against Saracens. However, it wasn't enough but the squad will have plenty to work on this week ahead of the derby match against Bristol.
Gloucester may be coming off their best win of the season, the 38-16 victory over Wasps last weekend, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys admits that Sunday's trip to Saracens is an even tougher test.
After a series of contract announcements last week, hooker Richard Hibbard is the latest Gloucester Rugby player to commit to a new contract at the club and told GRTV how much he enjoys playing in the Cherry and White of Gloucester.
Talk about a game of two halves. Things looked grim on Saturday as Gloucester trailed 0-6 to Bristol at half-time. However, Matt Scott's eighth try of the season got Gloucester off and running, and the visitors fell apart as the Cherry and Whites eased to a 26-18 bonus point Aviva Premiership win.
