Leicester Tigers duo George Ford and Matt Everard retain their places in the England Under-20 side to face France at Sixways, Worcester on Sunday (3.15pm).

England put their unbeaten Six Nations record on the line in Worcester after victories against Wales and Italy, and coach Rob Hunter is keen to keep the confidence flowing.

"France will be tough," he said. "They've won two from two and will come here wanting to win. We’ve got to where we are due to the hard work we’ve put in during the camps but we’re going to have to build on that when we play France. We've got momentum and that shouldn't be overlooked."

The England Under-20 match will be shown live on the red button on Sky Sports 3.
