England have handed explosive centre Manu Tuilagi his Test debut for Saturday's visit of Wales at a packed out Twickenham.
The 20-year-old Samoan will partner Kiwi Riki Flutey in the heart of England's midfield while veteran Jonny Wilkinson will pull the strings from fly half.
"I'm really proud to be winning my first cap," said Tuilagi, who was voted Premiership young player of the year last season.
"There is a lot of competition for places and I just want to take this chance and do the best I can for the team. The boys have worked hard during the camp but now we have to perform against Wales."
Tuilagi will be the fifth member of his family to play international rugby, with his four brothers having played for Samoa.
