Three members of the Leicester Tigers Senior Academy have been included in the England Under-20s matchday squad for their opening game against Georgia on Saturday, May 27 at Avchala Stadium in Tbilisi.
Jacob Cusick starts at outside centre, with teammates Finn Carnduff and Joseph Woodward amongst the replacements.
“We’ve selected a side for our first match against Georgia U20 which will give us a chance to try out new on-pitch combinations and also to see players who didn’t play big minutes during the Under-20 Six Nations campaign"
England U20's Head Coach, Mark Mapletoft.
