England Under 18 have named their side to take on South Africa in Stellenbosch on Saturday, the final game of their tour to the Rainbow Nation, kick off 3.00pm BST.

John Fletcher and Pete Walton’s side are two from two so far with wins against Wales and France, but head coach Fletcher says that playing the South Africans in their own back yard will be a huge test.

He said: “We know what to expect – they’ll be big, they’ll be strong and they’ll be direct. But we have our own game plan and we’ll be looking to take the game to them, but we’re under no illusions, it’ll be a tough game. The mood in camp is good – we’ve had a good tour and the lads have been great.”

QEW & Leicester Tigers back row Charlie Beckett will captain the side, and Fletcher said that he deserves the opportunity: “Charlie is a natural leader, he is respected and will lead the side well.”
