Ollie Dawe Set For World Rugby U20 Championship

Ollie Dawe has been included in England's 28-man squad for the World Rugby U20 Championship taking place in Georgia in June.

The Academy prop - who helped England U20s to the RBS Six Nations Grand Slam earlier this year - was included in the team of the tournament.

RFU Head of International Player Development, Dean Ryan said: “Following the England U20 Grand Slam earlier this year, it is great to have five players earn places in the senior squad.

“The Six Nations showed that we have a large pool of young talent and that competition for places is high. We’re looking forward to seeing which players now take the opportunity to make their mark in the World Championship this summer as this group continues to develop.”

Playing all of their Pool A matches in the Avchala Stadium, the reigning champions will open their campaign against Samoa on Wednesday 31 May.

Samoa have been promoted to the U20 Championship after winning the World Rugby U20 Trophy in Zimbabwe last year. England will face familiar faces in their second fixture when they come up against Wales on Sunday 4 June.

The two sides recently met in the Six Nations, with England coming out on top as 37-21 winners. Australia, who were in England’s pool last year, are the opposition for their final pool game on Thursday 8 June.
