Samoan internationals Alesana Tuilagi and Andy Tuilagi form part of a side captained by Richard Mayhew.

Tom Catterick starts at fly-half with Japan prop Kensuke Hatakeyama on the tight-head side, returning to a venue at which his country played during the Rugby World Cup.

Kenyan back-rower Joshua Chisanga is among the replacements for Monday’s game, joining USA international Eric Fry on the bench.
