London Irish quartet Jarod Leat, Matt Kouris, Rory Brand and Tom Parton have all been named in the England Under-18 squad to face Scotland at Stirling County this Sunday (kick-off 1pm).

The foursome, who were part of the Exiles’ Academy that were crowned Premiership Rugby U18s champions, will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 22-12 defeat in France.

Academy coach Declan Danaher said: “This fixture presents another great opportunity for the players to show what they can do in the international arena.

“It’s brilliant to see Matt Kouris involved after he captained our under-18s side so well this season. We are incredibly proud and I am sure they will all do themselves justice.”
