Two Leicester Tigers players are included in the England Under-18s squad for the FIRA/AER European Championship in Poland later this month.

England have reached the final in each of the past three seasons, winning in 2012 and 2013.

Tigers Academy prop Owen Hills and centre Charlie Thacker are named in the squad by coaches John Fletcher and Peter Walton.

Head coach Fletcher said: “We come into the tournament after three good performances against Scotland, Wales and France. There’s a lot of talent in England – the squad has some good depth and there’s real quality in all areas.”

England open against Portugal in Poznan on April 11 and will also play on April 15 and 19.
