Tigers trio in line for England Under-20s

Figure image
Leicester Tigers development squad members Henry Purdy and Harry Thacker are in the starting line-up for England Under-20s to face France on Friday. Club colleague Will Owen is among the replacements.

Purdy, a World Junior Championships winner in this age group last season, is included on the wing after playing for Tigers in the LV= Cup last weekend, while Thacker has recovered from injury to take a place in the front row.

Owen, an Under-18 cap last season, is named in the squad for the first time at Under-20s level.

England kick off their Under-20s Six nations campaign against France at the Stade Leo Lagrange in Draguignan.
