Two members of Gloucester's Zurich 'A' League team this season have been included in the England Students squad to play France on Friday.
Wing/centre Mark Foster and second row Tom Skelding, who both attend Gloucester's Hartpury College are named in the squad alongside former Academy prop Mark Irish.
Brad Davies misses out after being involved in the last game, as he's required for Sunday's Zurich Premiership clash away at Newcastle.
New additions to the squad include Bath wing Owen Evans, Exeter fly-half Adam Staniforth, Bristol prop Simon Carter and Durham hooker Robert Vickers.
Loughborough prop Dave Bassett travels as cover for Mark Irish, who will have a fitness test on Thursday.
Evans replaces injured Oxford wing Jonan Boto, while prop George Davis and hooker Robin Scothern are unavailable and fly-half Bradley Davies is on Zurich Premiership duty with Gloucester.
England beat the French 10-6 at Blackheath earlier this month thanks to a penalty try and a conversion and penalty from Oxford centre James Whittingham.
But they are expecting a backlash at La Roche Sur Yon - midway between Nantes and La Rochelle - when they meet again on Friday night (7.30pm local time).
"We've done well so far but it'll be interested to see what changes they've made for the return game and we're expecting them to come back at us," said manager Tony Lanaway.
England Students are in action again next month when they take on Italy at Iffley Road, Oxford, on Friday March 11 (6pm).

Fly-half Billy Burns was named Man of the Match after the 35-14 European Rugby Challenge Cup victory over Stade Rochelais on Thursday evening, and was full of praise for all his team mates for the win after a short turnaround.
Gloucester have been in good form in recent weeks, but Backs Coach Tim Taylor knows that the Cherry and Whites will have to be at their best on Thursday evening (kick off 7:45pm) against a Stade Rochelais side flying high this season.
Speaking to GRTV after the bonus point win over Bristol, back row Lewis Ludlow revealed that despite a tricky first half, Gloucester backed their skills to come through, a faith that was evident in a strong second half showing.
Willi Heinz scored Gloucester's second try as the Cherry and Whites overturned a disappointing first 40 minutes and 0-6 half time deficit, to earn a 26-18 Aviva Premiership victory over Bristol Rugby on Saturday.
Gloucester's much changed side had to overcome conceding an early try on Thursday evening, but responded in style to down Stade Rochelais by 35 points to 14 in the European Rugby Challenge Cup and set up a mouthwatering return fixture next weekend.
After taking 11 points from their last three games in the Aviva Premiership, including bonus point wins against Wasps and Bristol, Gloucester will be looking to continue their good form when they welcome La Rochelle to Kingsholm.
