Figure image

Leicester Tigers forward Finn Carnduff is set to captain England Under-20s in their Six Nations opener this weekend.

The flanker will lead out the side against Italy in the tournament's curtain raiser this Friday, February 2 (kick off: 7.15pm).

Versatile forward Carnduff has been named the U20 team captain for the tournament and represented his country in the 2023 Under-20 Six Nations and World Rugby U20 Championship.

The Tigers Academy standout was recently involved in his 10th senior Tigers appearance as a replacement in the side's 19 - 20 Gallagher Premiership win away to Harlequins at Twickenham Stoop last weekend.
