Rice and Turner set for Six Nations play-off

Charlie Rice is set for his first start of the U20 Six Nations Summer Series when England face Italy in the competition play-offs on Tuesday (5pm KO).

Academy prop Andrew Turrner is also included in the squad, returning on the bench for the game at the Stadio Monigo, Treviso.

The starting side features a few changes to the team that lost to Ireland in the last game, with Sam Harris, Tom Carr-Smith, Lucas Brooke and Charlie Rice all moving from the bench to start and George Hendy changing from fullback to left wing.  

England men’s U20 head coach, Alan Dickens, speaking ahead of the play off said: “Although we were disappointed to concede four tries in the first half against Ireland, I thought we did well to score six of our own and get the bonus point. Italy had a really good pool stage and we know they will give us a strong test, but we’ll be looking to finish the Summer Series on a real high”
