Dickens names England U20 team for Wales match

England men’s U20 head coach Alan Dickens has named his side to play Wales on Wednesday in the fourth round of the U20 Six Nations.

There are three changes to the starting line-up from England’s bonus point, 24-15 win against Ireland last week.

Orlando Bailey returns at full back, while Tom Roebuck makes his first start of the 2021 Six Nations on the wing. In the pack Fin Baxter is set to win his first U20 cap from loose head. Jack van Poortvliet again captains the side from scrum half.
There are also two changes among the replacements with Lewis Holsey (loose head) and Deago Bailey (wing) returning to the match day 26.

Teams are permitted to name a squad of 26 players for each fixture in this year’s competition due to Covid-19 regulations. Eight of the 11 replacements named in a squad can be used during the match.
