Danielli will be making his first start of this year’s Six Nations whereas Ansbro returns from concussion and Lawson is recalled having started the defeat to Wales in their second game of the competition.
In the forwards Nathan Hines comes in at blindside flanker, the position he occupied in their defeat to France, while Kelly Brown switches to No.8 with Johnnie Beattie missing out altogether.
Scotland haven’t won a Calcutta Cup game at Twickenham since 1983 and are yet to win a match in this year’s Six Nations but Robinson is confident his side have what it takes to stop the rot.
“The record books show what a special achievement it would be for the Scotland team to win on Sunday,” he said.
“That is our intention and we firmly believe that if we can deliver a sustained, intelligent and ruthless performance then we can achieve our first win of this season’s championship.
“England have played some good rugby in this championship but Sunday is about our performance.
“Simon Danielli and Rory Lawson have both been playing well for their clubs and Joe Ansbro was unfortunate to miss the game against Ireland through injury, while Nathan Hines’ experience will be an asset for us in our back-row.”
