Saracens will have a trio of representatives as a much-changed England U20s look to continue their perfect start to the Six Nations.
Nick Isiekwe, Jack Nay and Dominic Morris will be part of a starting XV against Italy that shows eight changes from the side that beat Wales last time out.
Nay is one of those changes as is Morris who will get his third cap for the U20s
Harlequins winger Sam-Aspland-Robinson also comes in and there is a first start for Jamie Blamire, Josh Caulfield, Ben Curry, Ciaran Knight and Alex Mitchell.
Zach Mercer will captain the team following Ben Earl’s knee injury which ruled him out of the tournament.
