Leicester Tigers centre Jacob Cusick will line up as part of the England Under-20s squad to face Oxford University this Saturday.

England coach Alan Dickens has named a different team for each half of the contest at Oxford University Sports Ground to give the all players an opportunity on the field ahead of the Under-20s Six Nations.

Tigers Academy graduate Cusick made his senior team team for the club earlier this season with two appearances in the Premiership Rugby Cup.

“We’ve had two camps which helped bring the group together and kickstart our Six Nations preparation,” Dickens said.

“The game against Oxford University will be an excellent opportunity for us to put into practice all our work in training and assess how well the lads are working as a group.  It’s a great way for us to prepare for our opening game in the Six Nations away to Scotland.”
