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).
