Team Manager Peter Drewett said: "This is the initial training squad for the Six Nations. We're facing a tough challenge in the form of our opening fixture against France, but the talented pool of players presently available for selection in this age group is very encouraging.
"There will be some tough decisions to be made next month when the final squad to play in the opening fixture this season will be selected. I was happy with the performance of the U21 A team in their fixture against Wales last month and I've made it quite clear to all the squad that there is everything to play for."
