England Under 20 have named their side to take on Ireland on Friday night at Donnybrook Stadium in Dublin (kick off 7.05pm, live on Sky Sports).

Head Coach Jon Callard has made six changes from the side that beat Italy 61-0, with 2014 Junior World Championship winners and Saracens duo Aaron Morris and Nick Tompkins both coming back into the starting 15.

There is also an Under 20 debut for fly half Oliver Bryant while half back partner James Mitchell, tight-head prop Ciaran Parker and and flanker Joe Batley all make their first starts.

Ireland currently sit top of the Under 20 Six Nations table, with two wins from two, and Callard is aware of the tough assignment.

He said: “Playing Ireland in Ireland will be a huge test – it’s one of the biggest in rugby. And from what we’ve seen they are a very good, physical side with lots of pace. But we’re excited by that, we’ve got pace in our side and on the 4G pitch it should make for a great spectacle.

“We’ve had an excellent week training, and although we have had to be patient regarding the availability of a couple of players, it’s great experience for our guys.

“We’re delighted to bring Nick and Aaron back into the fold, excellent medical work from both club and the union has seen them both back fit and raring to go. They both played last season and that experience and know-how should stand us in good stead.”
