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."

Ben Morgan was on media duty this week, and as Gloucester prepare for Sunday's trip to Wasps, the number eight is looking forward to see Gloucester go toe-to-toe with another of the Aviva Premiership's front runners.
Tom Marshall scored his first Gloucester try in the 31-23 win over Saracens on Friday evening and was named Man of the Match. Talking to GRTV, he praised the forwards for setting the tone on the night.

Gloucester battled bravely against Wasps on Sunday, but it was a case of taking chances at the Ricoh Arena. Gloucester didn't make the most of theirs while Wasps did, and that proved to be the difference.
Gloucester were competitive for long periods at the Ricoh Arena on Sunday afternoon, but were left to rue a host of missed scoring opportunities throughout as Wasps hit back to earn a 35-22 Aviva Premiership win.
Gloucester's Ciaran Knight made his first start at tighthead prop, Henry Walker made his first appearance as a second half replacement and Alex Seville also featured as England U20s might it three from three in the U20s Six Nations with a 46-0 win over Italy in Darlington on Friday night.
