England Under 20 have announced their revised Elite Player Squad, making two changes with Harlequins centre Harry Sloan and Leicester Tigers wing Henry Purdy coming into the 32-man group.

Head coach Rob Hunter’s squad will look to defend their Under 20 Six Nations title over the next two months before heading to France for the IRB Junior World Championship in June.

Hunter said: “We’ve made a couple of changes to the squad and brought in two guys who have been performing consistently well at their club. Both Harry and Henry are talented players and we’re excited to see what they can bring.

“Our focus at the moment is solely on our own preparation and that first Six Nations game against Scotland in Plymouth. They’ve had a warm up game and they’ll be coming at us from the first whistle, but we’ve trained well and we’re looking forward to getting out there on February 1.”
