Nick Walshe has made six changes to the England U20 side from the team that beat Italy 63-3 on Monday.
His side face Australia at 06.30 on Friday in what is likely to be a Pool decider following the junior Wallabies 36-17 victory over Argentina on the opening day of the competition.
The Bath and former Millfield lock, Tom Ellis is unable to take a place in the 23 following the injury he picked up against Italy, however his Bath teammate and former Bryanston School adversary, Charlie Ewels steps in to fill his shoes alongside the Saracens and former Harrow lock, Maro Itoje.
Squad captain Callum Braley is on the bench, with Loughborough Universityâ€™s former Cranleigh School star Henry Taylor starting at scrum half. As in the U20 Six Nations, Braleyâ€™s absence means that the captaincy passes over to the excellent Itoje.
Elsewhere, Exeter Chiefsâ€™ Joel Conlon comes in for James Chisholm at number 8, Chisholm takes his place on the bench alongside fellow back row man Hayden Thompson-Stringer from Saracens.
Itâ€™s all change in the halfbacks, with the aforementioned Taylor coming for Braley at nine, and Gloucesterâ€™s Billy Burns coming in for the impressive Sam Olver at ten, Olver and Braley will likely be involved from the bench though.
Thereâ€™s plenty of change in the back three too. Henry Purdy replaces his Leicester Tigers teammate George Catchpole on the right wing, while Northampton Saintsâ€™ Howard Packman, so impressive for England 7s this spring, replaces Bedfordâ€™s Aaron Morris at full back, Morris starts this one from the bench.
Mondayâ€™s hat-trick hero, Nathan Earle, retains his place on the left wing, while the excellent centre pairing of Nick Tompkins and Harry Sloan continue their run together in midfield.
Aside form Conlon and Ewels inclusion the pack is unsurprisingly unchanged from that victory over Italy, they dismantled the Italian set piece in brutal fashion. That means that Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi, Tom Woolstencroft, and Paul Hill retain their places in the front row, while Ross Moriarty and the ever-impressive Gus Jones start at six and seven respectively.
Speaking ahead of the game, Maro Itoje was keen to stress that there was more to come from the side despite that dominant performance against Italy:
â€œWe were pleased with how we played against Italy but the overriding feeling was that we still had more to come. We have trained well this week with the ultimate aim of performing well in this game.â€
â€œAustralia will be a huge threat, they have players who have some Super Rugby experience, but we have players who have played at the top level too. We have prepared well and itâ€™ll be a real honour to lead this England side out on Friday.â€
