Figure image
Leicester Tigers scrum-half Harry Simmons is included in the matchday squad as England Under-18s kick off their tour to South Africa on Friday.

The tour begins with a fixture against France Under-18s and will be followed by two games against South Africa Schools sides in the next week.
England forwards coach Peter Walton said: “France will test our physicality especially through the forwards. We played them once this year which was our only defeat of the season and the players are keen to change the result.
“The whole tour is about developing the players through the three games and we are focussing on improving our performances from the end of last season.”
