Figure image
England Saxons have named five Leicester Tigers in the matchday squad to take on Scotland A at Kingston Park, Newcastle on Friday night (8pm).

The Saxons will be captained by Jordan Crane and include Graham Kitchener in the second row after his man-of-the-match display in the win away to Ireland Wolfhounds last week. George Ford starts at fly-half while Ed Slater and Kieran Brookes are named on the bench.

Head coach Jon Callard has kept changes to a minimum as he aims to build on the momentum established with last week’s 14-10 win in Galway.

Jonny May (Gloucester Rugby) and Matt Mullan (Worcester Warriors) come into the starting line-up.
May takes over from Christian Wade (London Wasps) on the right wing and prop Mullan replaces Nick Wood (Gloucester) at loose head..
