Matthew Rosslee is the only other change in the backs with the impressive fly-half being switched to inside centre for their match with Malaysia in place of Max Woodward.
In the forwards Jones makes no fewer than seven changes with Nicholas Hewson the only player unchanged.
Hooker Jamie Tsang will captain the side in the absenc Jamie Cunningham who is replaced by Jamie Pincott.
For Malaysia, there are five new faces and three positional changes to the side that lost to Korea last weekend in Incheon.
Wing Mohamad Aiman Jamaluddin switches to full-back with Samuela Tamanisau being rewarded with a start in his place.
In the forwards prop Mohd Farid Sujari and flanker Mohamad Syarif Saiful Aazwan come into the starting XV for the match at Hong Kong Football Club.
