Gloucester's James Simpson-Daniel is in the England starting XV for Sunday's opening Churchill Cup clash against Canada.
The 23 year-old starts at outside centre, with James Forrester on the bench alongside summer signing Peter Richards. Andy Gomarsall, who joins Worcester for the start of the 05/06 season starts at scrum-half.
Coach Joe Lydon said: "We are selecting from a fully fit squad, with the exception of Mathew Tait, who is still recovering from a slight muscle injury. This Sunday is the first outing for five of our twenty five man squad - Chris Bell, Perry Freshwater, Phil Dowson, Stuart Turner and Ugo Monye, and I'm sure all five of these players will take the opportunity to make a big impression.
"I've always seen this as a three match tour for England, with the recent game at Twickenham against a world class Barbarians side, as the first of the three. Above all, with over 20 England players currently on Lions duty in New Zealand, this tour is a terrific opportunity for some of these players to show what they are capable of, with future England selection in mind."
The England squad flew in from Toronto Wednesday afternoon, where they have been training since leaving Twickenham last week.
Captain Pat Sanderson summed up the mood in the camp, he added: "The squad are looking forward to the tournament in Edmonton tremendously. We couldn't have asked for a better opener than playing Canada in Canada, at their Commonwealth Stadium. We've always been made very welcome here on previous Churchill Cup tours and we're ready for whatever lies ahead."
