Former Ivybridge junior Slade will again be in the number 10 shirt and ex-Devonport Services youngster Arnott will again wear the number 14 jersey as England play Ireland at Athlone.

Cowan-Dickie moves from prop to hooker this week.
The powerful Cornishman starred at Brickfields last Friday.
He started the game at loose-head, but switched later in the second half to hooker, scoring England's winning try.
Cowan-Dickie said: "It was great to play in the South West (last Friday). There are a few of us from down there in the squad and it's normally a long train or car journey up to under-20 camps. It was nice to bring everyone down to us for a change.
"Fair play, about 5,000 people came down to cheer us on which really helped us on the pitch.
"From a personal point of view I was really happy to get a try, but the win was obviously more important.
"I also moved to hooker for the first time in an England shirt. It's something the coaches want me to do and even though I'm still learning the role, I'm really enjoying it."
Cowan-Dickie added: "Ireland is never an easy place to go. We'll need to be on form if we want to get the win.
"We beat them at Adam Parks last season, so they might have a point to prove. We'll stick to our processes and fingers-crossed we get a positive result."
