England U20 side to face Scotland announced

England U20 Head Coach Jon Callard has named his side to face Scotland in the U20 6 Nations on Friday evening.

The game kicks off at 17.30 at Darlington Mowden Park’s Northern Echo Arena, and is part of a double header with England Women playing Scotland Women straight afterwards. Both games will be shown live on Sky Sports 3.

Callard makes three changes to his side that beat Ireland last time out, putting England top of the table. He brings is former Wellington College star Seb Adeniran-Olule at loosehead and ex Prince Henry’s Grammar School man Paul Hill at tighthead, with the former Bryanston stand off Rory Jennings coming back into the side at fly half.

Speaking ahead of the game, Callard said:

“It’s a game we’re hugely looking forward to. We want to build on the positives from the game against Ireland, but at the same time we know that there are still things we need to work on.”

“Scotland come to us on the back of an excellent win against Italy and will be full of confidence. They are a strong side, they like to move the ball and play with some width. We’ll need to be on our game to ensure we get the right result.”

The game will have a huge impact on the destination of the U20 6 Nations title. While England are top and Scotland 4th at the moment, both are tied on points, with Ireland and France in between also level, only points difference separates the four sides with just one game left after this weekend.
