Eddie Jones has named the 33-man England squad that will prepare to face France in round 4 of the 2018 Six Nations.
Jones' squad sees the return of apprentices Gabriel Ibitoye and Marcus Smith. Elliot Daly and Sam Simmonds also enjoy their inclusions following their return from injury.
Former apprentice player turned fully fledged squad member Zach Mercer returns to camp following a barn storming performance against Sale last weekend.
The return of both Simmonds and Mercer sees Jones' options at number eight grow from one to three, with Nathan Hughes the most capped of the three and likely to retain his starting role in Paris.
Tighthead prop Kyle Sinckler continues his return to form following a hamstring injury picked up during England's pre-tournament camp in Portugal. The Harlequins prop will compete with Exeter's Harry Williams for the bench spot behind Dan Cole.
