Scrum-half Natasha Hunt has been withdrawn from England’s squad to face Italy in the Six Nations on Sunday after a positive coronavirus test.
The Gloucester-Hartpury captain will isolate for 10 days before undertaking a seven-day return to play programme.
Wasps’ Claudia MacDonald will start at scrum-half, while Leanne Riley replaces her on the bench after being added to the squad.
England will complete back-to-back Grand Slams if they win in Parma.
“While we’re understandably disappointed for Natasha, the health and safety of all players and staff members is paramount,” said head coach Simon Middleton.
“Claudia is a fantastic replacement and the game gives her a chance to impress from the start.
“After a tough year for everyone, we’re grateful to be preparing for international rugby again and targeting a Grand Slam.”
Loughborough Lightning’s Morwenna Talling will start in the second row for her senior debut, while Abbie Ward and Marlie Packer are set for their first appearances in almost a year.
Ellie Kildunne makes her first international XVs appearance since the win over Ireland in the 2018 Women’s Six Nations.
Team: Kildunne; Breach, Scarratt (capt), Reed, Dow; Daley-Mclean, MacDonald; Cornborough, Davies, Bern, Ward, Talling, Cleall, Packer, Beckett.
