England U20 Announce Six Nations Fixtures in Exeter, Darlington and Northampton

Rugby fans across the country can watch England Under 20 compete in the Six Nations this season with home fixtures being played in Exeter, Darlington and Northampton.

The schedule of fixtures replicates the senior teams, with England kicking off the Championship against France at Sandy Park in Exeter on Saturday 4th February.

The match, which kicks off at 12pm, will see Exeter host an England U20 match for the first time. Sandy Park gave a warm welcome to GB Sevens at the Mitsubishi Motors Exeter Sevens in the summer and a similar vibrant atmosphere is expected in support of England’s young talent.

An away fixture against defending champions and Grand Slam winners Wales follows before England play Italy at Darlington Mowden Park on Friday 24th February at 7:45pm.

England’s penultimate game of the tournament will be against Scotland on Saturday 11th March at Franklin’s Gardens, Northampton, scheduled for a 6:15pm start. The side then finish their campaign in Dublin, Ireland.

All of the home England U20 Six Nations fixtures in 2017 will be shown live on Sky Sports.

England U20 Coach Rory Teague said: “We have a lot of hard work to put in from now until February and it’s important we make sure the squad are aware and prepared for the intensity that is required of them at this level. The opportunity to represent your country in a special competition like the Six Nations is a real honour for any player.

“The support we receive wherever we play across the country is fantastic and these different environments and new grounds allow us to challenge the players in a number of ways.

“It will be a special occasion playing at Sandy Park for the first time as England U20 and an excellent crowd can always be expected in Northampton. We received brilliant support in Newcastle last year and I’m sure it will be the same in Darlington, it is great that England U20 can play there again.”
