England U20 Head Coach Rob Hunter has named a strong side to face Scotland at Newbury’s Monks Lane on Friday night, kick off 8pm.
Elliot Daly, Joe Launchbury and Christian Wade all start at 13, 4 and 11 respectively, while Sam Jones makes his first U20 appearance of the season, starting on the bench.
Speaking about his match day squad Hunter said: “We’ve made a few changes and it’s nice to have such good competition for places.
“We’re in a good position this week where we have a lot of players available to us, but we have a lot of guys performing well and putting pressure on each other.
“Scotland will be strong, committed, quick and organised. They present a different challenge from the three sides we’ve faced so far and any game against Scotland is huge due to the enormous amount of history and spice between the two nations.”
The England U20 match against Scotland will be live on the Sky Sports 3 red button. Tickets are available on the door at Monks Lane from £12, with children under ten receiving free entry.
