Andrew Forsyth will make his first start at the IRB Junior World Championship after being named in the England Under-20s team to play Ireland Under-20s.

Leicester Tigers youngster Forsyth will start at centre in one of ten changes to the side that beat host nation Argentina in the first round of group matches.

His Tigers teammates Sam Harrison and Calum Green drop to the bench for the game in Rosario, which kicks off at 6.10pm BST on Wednesday.

Head coach Mark Mapletoft: "We know this is a tough group, but we want to win each game, so we've picked a side to try and do that. At the same time we can't expect 80 minutes from all our players every three days.”
