England have named Tom Youngs and Alex Goode in their starting line-up for their opening November Test fixture with Fiji at Twickenham on Saturday.
The Leicester Tigers hooker, who played twice in midweek during the June tour of South Africa, will start alongside Joe Marler and Dan Cole as England are set to kick-off their four-Test series.
There are five changes to the XV from the final Test against the Boks, including Charlie Sharples coming on to the right wing for Chris Ashton and Ugo Monye taking over from Ben Foden on the left.
Brad Barritt will partner Manusamoa Tulagi in the centre while Chris Robshaw returns as captain at openside flanker for James Haskell.
"This QBE International series will be a real marker of where we are as a squad. We are playing four back to back matches in four weeks against the top teams in the world and we are confident we can rise to the challenge. The foundations are in place, now it's time for us to execute and deliver," said England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster.
"Fiji is a good first Test for us and we can't wait to play back at Twickenham. The atmosphere against Ireland back in March was superb and you can't underestimate what it means to the players to have 82,000 people and the nation behind them.
"Congratulations to Tom Youngs, who has made a great transition from centre to hooker in a short period and deserves his chance, as do Joe Launchbury and Mako Vunipola, who we are pleased to be able to include in the squad."
