Scrum half to captain England U20s

Callum Braley will skipper England U20s ahead of the RBS Six Nations clash versus Wales U20s at Kingston Park on Friday (7.45pm KO).

The Bristol scrum half starts his fourth successive fixture in the competition as England face Wales for the first time since the IRB Junior World Championship final in 2013.

Head Coach Nick Walshe said: “We’ve made a good start to the Championship, it was disappointing to lose out in France but bounced back with good wins against Scotland and Ireland.

"The positive thing is that we still feel there is more to come from the guys, and we’re hoping for a good performance against Wales.

“We’ve made a few changes to the side and that gives us the opportunity to try out some new combinations – having that strength in depth is crucial, and we feel that we’ve picked a strong side for Friday."
