Delon Armitage has been named in the England team for the RBS 6 Nations opener against Wales on Saturday.
The London Irish full-back returns to the side after missing the autumn internationals with a shoulder injury and is one of six changes made by England manager Martin Johnson from the 19-6 defeat to New Zealand in November.
Centre Riki Flutey is back in the starting XV after suffering a shoulder injury, back-row Nick Easter reclaims the No.8 jersey while Mathew Tait – who will celebrate his 24th birthday on the day of the game - will line up alongside Flutey in midfield.
Danny Care partners Jonny Wilkinson at half-back at the expense of Paul Hodgson while David Wilson is back in the team at prop.
Uncapped Leicester prop Dan Cole has earned a place on the bench.
