There are just two fixtures in the Aviva A League tonight, but it should be no less exciting for it.
Sale Jets v Leicester Tigers A and Harlequins A v Exeter Braves are the two games, both kicking off at 19.30. True to form, all four sides have opted for a very healthy does of youth.
Sale Jets include the likes of Kingâ€™s Chester leaver George Nott, Liam Parfitt, Lymm High School old boy James Mitchell, and Ciaran Parker the former England U18 and St Ambrose College prop, among others.
Leicester, finally with a few players back from injury, have named a few more familiar faces than had been in their squad in recent week. JWC winner George Catchpole returns to the team, with is led by England age grade player Harry Thacker, with his younger brother Charlie partnering Catchpole in the centres.
Elsewhere this likes of Will Owen, Charlie Beckett, George Tresidder, and Joe Maksymiw add to a very youthfull line up.
Harlequins as ever have opted for plenty of youth, but the big story is the inclusion of three Chisholm brothers in the squad. Esherâ€™s Ali is on the bench, with Ross at full back, and the youngster James leads the side from openside flanker, James won the JWC with England U20s in June and captained Brighton College and England U18 the year before.
Whitgift leaver Henry Cheeseman starts alongside James Chisholm at number 8, with Wellington College leaver Seb Adeniran-Olule starting at tighthead. James Chisholmâ€™s fellow JWC winner Harry Sloan starts at outside centre next to Jordan Turner-Hall.
The bench is packed with youngsters including Cheesemanâ€™s former Whitgift teammate Stan South and their John Fisher rival Kieran Treadwell. They are joined by their England U18 teammate and Dulwich College leaver Josh Ibuanopkpe, as well as Cranleigh elaver Charlie Piper.
Exeter Braves are led by their academy number 8 Sam Skinner, who is joined by fellow youngsters Jerry Sexton, Ed Holmes, Sam Simmonds, Max Bodilly and Tom Hendrickson.
Meanwhile on the bench the return of Luke Cowan-Dickie, a JWC winner in 2013, will grab most headlines, he will later be joined in the front row by England U18 prop Jack Stanley.
