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."
