Five Exeter Chiefs academy prospects have been named in the England under-20s starting line-up for Friday's game against Scotland (5.45pm).
Backs Sam Hill, Henry Slade and Jack Arnott are joined by Luke Cowan-Dickie and Joel Conlon - a late call-up to the squad - for the match at Plymouth Albion's Brickfields ground.
However, there is no place for full-back Jack Nowell, who will now be available for the Chiefs' LV= Cup game against Northampton at Sandy Park on Saturday (6.30pm).
It will be an under-20s debut for Conlon, who played No. 8 for England under-18s but has been selected at openside for Friday's clash.
And Cowan-Dickie has been named in his accustomed position of loosehead, after starting at hooker for the Chiefs in last weekend's LV= Cup defeat at Bath.
Winger Arnott, who is dual-registered with hometown club Plymouth, said: "I'm really looking forward to playing in front of a home crowd – I've got some family coming down and I'm sure it'll be a great occasion.
"We're expecting a tough, physical game from Scotland but at the moment we're just concentrating on ourselves."
England under-20s: Watson (London Irish); Arnott (Exeter Chiefs), Sloan (Harlequins), Hill (Exeter Chiefs), Howard (Worcester); Slade (Exeter Chiefs), Day (Northampton); Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs), Crumpton (Saracens), Sinckler (Harlequins), Stooke (Gloucester), Barrow (Leeds), Moriarty (Gloucester), Conlon (Exeter Chiefs), Clifford (Harlequins). Reps: Herriott (Northampton), Hobbs-Awoyemi (Northampton), Wilson (Newcastle), Jubb (Saracens), Jones (Wasps), Fowles (Sale), Hooley (Northampton), Jennings (Sale)
