Figure image
Leicester Tigers lock Calum Green and centre Andrew Forsyth have been named in the England Under20s side for the IRB Junior World Championship semi-final against Australia.

Scrum-half Sam Harrison has been named on the bench for the game in Rosario, Argentina on Thursday (June 17, kick off 6.10pm BST).

Skipper Jacob Rowan (Leeds Carnegie) returns to the back row after he was rested against France and full-back Tom Homer (London Irish), the IRB JWC all-time leading points scorer, also returns to the team.

Head coach Mark Mapletoft said: “There is a good feeling in the camp at the moment, all 26 guys are fit and raring to go.

“We've managed to rotate the squad a little bit while winning games. Looking at the side we've selected a fifteen to win the game but looking at the bench, I'm sure those guys will come on and have an impact.”
