Collett called up for Welsh test

Figure image
Leicester hooker Tom Collett has been called into the England U-18 Six Nations Festival team to face Wales in Glasgow on Wednesday.

His Tigers colleague Greig Tonks retains his place at full-back after a 15-6 win over hosts Scotland on Easter Sunday, while Jack Cobden has been named among the replacements.

Collett's inclusion is one of seven changes made by England coach Chris Kibble who said: "This is going to be a very big game for both sides. We are expecting Wales to present us with a very tough challenge while they will probably be looking to get their own back on us after the Home Unions final a year ago. They have more experience than Scotland and will be more street-wise so this game will be a step-up for our players."
