Monty Bradbury will start at fly-half for the third successive England under-20s game when they take on Wales under-20s this Friday (24th).

He will be joined by Clubmates Calum Scott (hooker) and Afolabi Fasogbon (prop) from the bench.

The age-grade have an unblemished record in their 2023 Under-20 Six Nations, taking bonus point wins over Scotland (41-36) and Italy (32-25) to sit atop of the table.

Fasogbon scored his first under-20s try over the Azzurri two weeks ago, Bradbury also amassing his second try assist in as many games at Kingsholm Stadium.

The game this Friday kicks-off at 7.15pm and will be available on BBC iPlayer.

England under-20s Head Coach Dickens said: “I’m very proud of the players for the way they built on their win over Scotland, when it was evident in patches how we want to play the game, and then turned in a more complete performance against Italy.

“We’re building each week and Wales will present a new challenge.

“We’ve seen them compete hard for long periods of play against Ireland and Scotland in two close matches, so we know we’ll have to put in an 80-minute performance on Friday in Colwyn Bay.”


Go well, boys!
