London Wasps have been given a lift with Joe Launchbury set to start his first Test for England in Saturday's third QBE International against South Africa at Twickenham Stadium.
The 21-year-old lock - regarded as an outstanding prospect - has impressed when coming off the bench against Fiji and Australia and gets his chance in a side showing six changes.
Launchbury has featured in both of Wasps' Amlin Challenge Cup matches this season, scoring a try against Rugby Mogliano, as the 2003 tournament champions have claimed top spot in Pool 3 ahead of their key back-to-back contests with second placed Bayonne next month.
A second Wasp makes the match day squad with James Haskell named on the replacements bench while Tom Wood (Northampton Saints) and Ben Morgan (Gloucester Rugby) take over from Tom Johnson and Thomas Waldrom at No 6 and 8 respectively, while Alex Corbisiero comes in for Joe Marler at loosehead prop.
Mike Brown (Harlequins) replaces Charlie Sharples on the left wing and Ben Youngs partners Leicester Tigers' team-mate Toby Flood at halfback.
There are also call-ups to the bench for the first time in this series for Haskell, Mouritz Botha and Jonathan Joseph.
England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "We have picked a team that will give us the best chance of beating South Africa.
"There were some tight calls, which is what you want as coaches, but the players we have brought into start have been training well, will bring a real motivation to make the most of their opportunity and will suit the challenge we face against a tough and physical South African team."
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
