Your News England U20 name side for France

England U20 Head Coach Rob Hunter has made one change to the starting XV that comprehensively beat Italy 74-3 when his side takes on France this Sunday in Worcester, kick off 3.15pm.

London Irish lock Keiran Low comes in for Exeter Chiefs' Addison Lockley and there are also changes on the bench.

Gloucester's Koree Britton replaces Exeter Chiefs' Luke Cowan-Dickie who joins back up with the U18 squad as they prepare to take on Italy in Sale.

London Wasps scrum half Jonah Holmes takes the place of Gloucester's Dan Robson who is unavailable and the final change sees Charlie Walker from Harlequins come in for London Irish centre Guy Armitage who was injured against Italy.

Much like the seniors, England U20 put their unbeaten 6 Nations record on the line in Worcester and after victories against Wales and Italy in their opening games, Hunter is keen to keep the confidence flowing.

"France will be tough," he said. "They've won two from two, like us, and will come here wanting to win. Weve got to where we are due to the hard work weve put in during the camps but were going to have to build on that when we play France. We've got momentum and that shouldn't be overlooked."

Hunter's men head the bill at Sixways as table-topping Championship club Worcester play host to a tantalising treble of matches. England U20 Women face their French counterparts at 11am before the Senior Women side also plays France, kicking off at 1.05pm. The England U20 match will be live on the Sky Sports 3 red button.
