Henry Purdy and Harry Sloan have been added to the England U20 squad ahead of the Six Nations.
The Leicester wing and Harlequins centre are the only two changes made to the squad by Rob Hunter as they chase a third consecutive title in the annual European showdown.
Hunter said: “We’ve made a couple of changes to the squad and brought in two guys who have been performing consistently well at their club. Both Harry and Henry are talented players and we’re excited to see what they can bring.
“Our focus at the moment is solely on our own preparation and that first Six Nations game against Scotland in Plymouth. They’ve had a warm up game and they’ll be coming at us from the first whistle, but we’ve trained well and we’re looking forward to getting out there on February 1.”
