Bailey and Rice to face Scotland in U20 Six Nations opener

Deago Bailey is named on the wing for England U20's opening game of the U20 Six Nations Championship at The Dam Health Stadium, Edinburgh, on Friday, February 4th (8pm KO).

Charlie Rice is named among the replacements and could make his England U20 competitive debut in the Scottish capital.

Head Coach Alan Dickens said: “We’ve had a really great start to our training week and the attitude and commitment from the lads has been outstanding.  

“Yesterday we had a joint session with Oxford University following our game against them in mid-January.   It’s helpful to be able to incorporate that into our preparation for the Six Nations. 

“Scotland will be a tough side to face but the boys have put in quality preparation and we’re looking forward to getting out on the pitch in Edinburgh. 

“For many of the players this game will be their first Six Nations experience and that will be a very special moment; I want them to remember that on Friday night and savour the occasion."
