This development fixture is a continuation of England’s Under-18s programme which began with a three-game tour to South Africa last August, followed by another set of fixtures earlier this month. England also host the Under-18 Six Nations festival in April.
Tigers prop Whitcombe is among a group in this squad which has played at under-18 level already this season.
The Wales fixture is hosted at Morganstone Brewery Field, home of Bridgend RFC (kick-off 2pm) and will be shown live on S4C.
