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 game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell was on media duties ahead of the Aviva Premiership fixture at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, and spoke about where Gloucester find themselves in terms of their form at the moment as well as how he's viewing their defensive displays so far.
Callum Braley, who skippered Gloucester United to a 22-19 Aviva Premiership A League win over Saracens Storm on Monday evening, paid tribute to his forwards and the younger players in what he described as not the prettiest of wins.
A desperately disappointing afternoon for Gloucester who, despite dominating possession and territory, were guilty of failing to make the most of it against a resolute Newcastle defence before the visitors pounced to snatch the win in the second half.
Mariano Galarza and Ross Moriarty are both back from injury as Gloucester entertain the Newcastle Falcons at Kingsholm in the Aviva Premiership (Saturday, kick off 3pm). Willi Heinz will skipper the side from scrum-half.
