Also earning his first full cap ahead of his move to Kingsholm next season is Matt Kvesic, the flanker is joined in the back row by new team mate Ben Morgan as they look to develop a devastating partnership at both international and club level.
Looking to build on an impressive start to his international career is Billy Twelvetrees who is named at inside centre for the first test against the Pumas on Sunday evening.
Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "It is great to have so many young players pushing through and to be able to give them their opportunities on this tour.
"It is a young England side but one with a great deal of ability and self-belief and it will be great to see how they perform in the intensity of Test match rugby.
"Facing Argentina in front of their home crowd in Salta will be a tough challenge but we are looking forward to it and I am sure the players will give their all for the shirt."
The game is broadcast on BBC2 on Saturday 8th June at 19:30 (BST)
