Scrum half included among replacements

Callum Braley has been named on the replacements bench as England U20s go in search of the RBS Six Nations title versus Italy U20s at Stadio Peroni on Friday (6pm KO).

The scrum half - who has skippered England throughout the campaign - missed the emphatic 67-7 defeat of Wales last weekend after failing a late fitness test.

Only a win will give England a chance of retaining the Championship, while Ireland will also need to defeat France.

Head Coach Nick Walshe said: "“We enjoyed the win against Wales but focus is very much on the task in hand and preparing to play a well-drilled Italy side.

"There’s no doubt that they have improved over the past couple of seasons and we know that we’ll be in for a tough match.”
