Five Leicester Tigers Senior Academy players have been named in England U20’s Elite Playing squad for the 2023/24 season.

Finn Carnduff has featured heavily for Tigers in this season’s Premiership Cup, the backrower being the only Leicester representative to have been previously capped for England at U20 level

Carnduff is joined in England U20 head coach Mark Mapletoft’s squad by fellow forward Cameron Miell, scrum-half Ollie Allan, centre lionCharlie Myall and fullback Malelili Satala-Navlivou.

The development of Tigers' senior academy prospects is heavily supported by the club's partnership with Nottingham, Loughborough University and Leicester Lions, with all-five of Tigers' England U20 representatives likely to get valuable game time with those clubs throughout the year. 

The squad will prepare for another year of competitive action with camps at Browns Sports Resort, Portugal and Bisham Abbey across December and January, as well as a newly announced pair of exhibition warm-ups against Bath Rugby and Oxford University. 

England take on a select XV from the Somerset outfit on 6 January 2024 at Dings Crusaders RFC (17:00 GMT kick-off), whilst a meeting with the university side follows a week later at Oxford University (13 January, 14:00 GMT kick-off).

Italy awaits in the opening meeting of the 2024 U20 Six Nations (2 February 2024, 19:15 GMT kick-off), with England hosting both and Ireland in next year’s competition.
