England Under 18s coaches John Fletcher and Peter Walton have named their squad to take on Scotland at Dalziel Park on Sunday, March 9 (kick-off 12.00pm).
The game is England’s first international of the season as they build towards the annual FIRA/AER European Championship in April.
England played Scotland twice last season – winning on both occasions – but Fletcher says that Sunday’s game promises to be a tough encounter.
He explained: “Playing Scotland in Scotland is always a challenge and they’ll certainly be up for it; we have trained well together and head up to Hamilton full of confidence. We are always looking for the players and the squad to perform to their potential and put the things that we have worked on in training into the game”
Updates of the game will be available on @EnglandRugby.
