Boyland and Chamberlain feature in England-Scotland encounter

Two of Bristol Rugby Academy's brightest talents will go head to head when England U18s face Scotland U18s on Sunday (12pm KO).

Scrum half Boyland came off the bench for his U18s debut as England slipped to a narrow defeat to France, while fly half Nathan Chamberlain touched down for Scotland U18s on his U18s debut last weekend.

Both are involved in the respective squads for the clash at Stirling County RFC.

Following Sunday’s fixture the U18s will next be involved against Wales on 25 March at Sardis Road, Pontypridd (KO 4.15pm) before the ‘Six Nations Festival’.

The festival, based in Wales, will see England U18s play Scotland at Ystrad Mynach (31 March, KO 12pm), Italy at Cardiff Arms Park (4 April, KO 12pm) and France at the same venue on 8 April (KO 5pm).

John Fletcher said: “We want to see positive intent both sides of the ball and for them to express their skills and have a good impact on the game.

“This is the majority of the group that will go to the Six Nations Festival in Wales later this month. We meet on Friday and play on Sunday so that is a good experience for the players in terms of trying to build connections in relatively short periods of time.

"Playing Scotland in Scotland will be a good challenge for our side and they have shown in senior rugby and with the U20s that they are very capable. We will have to play to our very best to perform well in the game.

“For some of the players this will be their first experience of playing for England so they should be super excited about that. This is what they’ve worked towards, they are all in good form, that is why they are in the squad. I’m really looking forward to watching them play on Sunday.”
