Gloucester's Andy Gomarsall and Alex Brown both line-up for England 'A' in Friday's clash with France at Bath's Recreation ground.
Hugh Vyvyan will captain the England A side after skippering England in the 2003 and 2004 Churchill Cups.
"It's a great honour to captain the side and I am grateful to Brian Ashton and the coaches for giving me the opportunity," said Vyvyan.
"Training has gone well this week eventhough we have been together a short time and we are all looking forward to a tough match against France. We want to impress the senior selectors and give the first team squad a boost ahead of their own game on Sunday by coming away with a win."
The side also includes Iain Balshaw and Bath prop Duncan Bell, drafted in yesterday following Matt Stevens' promotion to the first team training squad.
Coach Brian Ashton said: "Hugh is an experienced captain who has led England to two successive Churchill Cup finals and he is well respected by the players.
"Everyone realizes that this game will be a terrific challenge but it is one that the team and management are looking forward to. We want to move England on and come out on top.
"I always feel playing against France is special because they can do things totally different to any other side. But I am also hoping that we might be the same and show something that is refreshing and has not been seen before."

Speaking after the 37-8 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over Benetton Treviso, James Hook admitted that the Italian side made things tough for Gloucester at times but that the Cherry and Whites are happy to take the bonus point win and turn their focus to Northampton next week.
Speaking to GRTV after the game, Backs Coach Tim Taylor was happy with the squad as they cruised to victory over Treviso. The result wasn't in doubt, but the Cherry and Whites laboured to secure a crucial try bonus point.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester Rugby centre Matt Scott is excited to take the field again as the Cherry and Whites look to build on the win in Bayonne when Treviso come to Kingsholm this Saturday.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell admitted this week that the European Rugby Challenge Cup victory in Bayonne was a welcome one, stressed that Benetton Treviso will pose a tough test on Saturday at Kingsholm but that Gloucester are determined to deliver in front of their own fans.
Motu Matu'u is looking to make up for lost time this week as the Cherry and Whites head to Basque Country to take on Bayonne in the European Rugby Challenge Cup opener. The Samoan hooker made his first appearance in the jersey last weekend, and is hoping to contribute to the team this weekend.
Gloucester's attentions turn to Europe this weekend as they travel to Bayonne for their opening fixture of this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup. Forwards Coach Trevor Woodman told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will be aiming to top their pool as they've done for the past two seasons, but is well aware of how tough it is to win in France.
Although understandably disappointed at seeing victory slip away at the last minute, Ben Morgan said after the game at Exeter that there were plenty of positives that Gloucester could take from the game.
Gloucester made it two wins from two outings in this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup as they outplayed Benetton Treviso at Kingsholm to win by 37 points to 8, the bonus point try coming with the final play of the game.
