England U18 name squad to face Scotland

Scotland U18 at Preston Grasshoppers RFC on Sunday (2:00pm kick off).

Five players are set to make their England U18 debut as the coaches take the opportunity to look at the wider squad and try different combinations following last week’s 43-14 victory over France.

The match is taking place on Preston Grasshoppers’ new floodlit artificial grass pitch (AGP) and will be streamed live on EnglandRugby.com and on Facebook Live via the official England Rugby page (https://www.facebook.com/OfficialEnglandRugby).

England U18 Head Coach John Fletcher said: “The performance against France was pleasing however we know there are lots of areas we can improve on. A key focus is to adapt in both attack and defence and hopefully we can make the most of the opportunities in front of us on Sunday.

“Scotland have always been fierce competitors and we know we will have to be on the top of our game.”
