England U20: Georgia Tour Squad Named | 2 Current Schoolboys Selected

England U20 Head Coach Mark Mapletoft has named a 30-player England U20 Men’s squad for their pre-World Rugby U20 Championship tour to Georgia this June.

The tour will see England take on Georgia in two uncapped Tests on 7 and 12 June at the Avchala Stadium. Each game kicks-off at 15:00 BST and will be streamed live on Georgian Rugby social media channels.

Finn Carnduff, the most experienced squad member with 15 caps, will resume his captaincy of the Men’s Pathway side for the 10-day tour after captaining his country to their first Under-20 Six Nations title in three years. A further 22 U20 players set to be involved in the trip to Georgia achieved caps across the victorious 2024 Six Nations campaign.

June’s travelling party boasts a cumulative 149 U20 Men’s caps, with 27 of 30 squad members having England U17, U18 or U19 caps to their name. George Timmins (Bath Rugby), Leicester Tigers’ Cameron Miell, Ollie Allan and Charlie Myall, as well as Jack Bracken and Angus Hall of Saracens are the uncapped squad members in contention to face the Junior Lelos. Timmins, Allan, Myall and Hall each achieved their first experience of U20 rugby in an uncapped fixture vs. Coventry RFC last weekend.

For Hall and Bracken the achievement is particularly special, both are still currently at school, with The Judd School and St Albans School respectively, a remarkable achievement and a sign of the high regard in which both are held.

England U20 Men’s head coach Mark Mapletoft said: “As our programme builds towards the U20 Championship this summer, we’ve further refined our wider squad ahead of the challenge of Georgia in the coming weeks.

“Lado [Kilasonia] and his team have proved a testing opponent in recent encounters, and we’re both confident that these upcoming games will mutually strengthen our respective preparations ahead of our trip to South Africa.

“I want to congratulate all players involved and I’m confident they’ll embrace the challenges set in front of them both in training and in-game scenarios.”
