George Catchpole and Henry Purdy will team up on the wings in England's final pool game at the Junior World Championships in New Zealand.

Catchpole returns to the team in one of the 12 changes for the match against Argentina.
England under-20s made it two wins from two games with a 38-24 victory over Australia on Friday.
Purdy is one of the three players retained to start the next game, alongside Nick Tompkins and Charlie Ewels.
Leicester Tigers prop Harry Rudkin is among the England replacements.
Head coach Nick Walshe said: “The great thing about our squad is that we have real strength in depth. There are a few lads desperate to make an impression and this is a great opportunity for them to perform.
“Argentina will be physical and they’ll provide a real test, but we’ve had a good few days since the Australia game, have recovered well and we’ll be ready for a tough match.”
