Scrum half to link up with U20s for tournament


Callum Braley has been named in the England U20s squad ahead of the IRB Junior World Championship in June.

The hugely talented Bristol Academy scrum half is included in Nick Walshe's 28-man squad that will travel to France this summer.

Walshe said: “We enjoyed a good Six Nations and on the back of that, competition for places has been high and some good players have missed out.

"However, we’re very pleased with the 28 selected. The games come thick and fast in this tournament, we’ve got a very tough group but we’re excited by that challenge.”

After an opening game with France, Six Nations winners England face title-holders South Africa before coming up against USA, who are competing in the JWC for the first time in five years.
