Gloucester's Olly Morgan misses out on this weekend's England U21 game against France at Franklin's Gardens (Fri 11 Feb, kick off 7.30pm).
The 19 year-old full-back played in last weekend's clash against Wales, but had a slight problem with his hamstring this week. Morgan has only just returned from a lengthy period out with a wrist injury, and is rested as a precaution.
Elsewhere in the England representative sides, Gloucester's Ryan Lamb starts at scrum-half for England U19s against their French counterparts. The U19s play France on Friday 11 February at Doncaster RFC, kick off 7pm.
Looking ahead to England's U21s clash against the French coach Jim Mallinder said: "Despite the disappointment of last week, the mood has been really positive all week. It's early days yet but things are starting to come together.
"We're delighted with the way we came back to score three tries in the second half last week and our aim this match is to continue our progress and build on that second half performance."
Assistant coach Nigel Redman added: "Falcons hooker Stuart Mackie has been called up to the bench to replace Neil Briggs and Saracens' David Seymour has been selected at open-side flanker on the back of regular performances in the premiership this season."
After a series of good performances for his club Northampton Saints, Paul Diggin makes his international U21 debut in the number 14 shirt. "Paul's performances in the last two Saints games mean he has been selected in this side on merit and he fully deserves this chance to impress."
