George Ford returns to the number 10 shirt and partners Martin Roberts in the half-backs.

Eusebio Guinazu and Juan Pablo Orlandi retain their places and are joined by Paul James in the front row, with captain Stuart Hooper combining with Dominic Day in the second row.

Matt Garvey and Carl Fearns are selected on the flanks, as Leroy Houston completes the pack at number eight.
