Will Evans will start the World Rugby Under-20 Championship Final in England's back row on Saturday evening.

The Leicester Tigers flanker will start his fourth game of the championship as England face Ireland at the AJ Bell Stadium.
England head coach Martin Haag has named an unchanged squad following victory over South Africa in the semi-final.
“It’s going to be a great occasion and for us it is about focusing on delivering at the highest level,” said Haag.
“There were some tough calls to make in selection. The performance against South Africa was fantastic and because of that those guys have earned their places for the final game.”
