SW RUGBY Nine West players in England U20s elite squad

england rugby1England men U20s head coach Alan Dickens has named his 32-man Elite Player Squad for the 2020 campaign.

The squad includes eight players already capped at U20s level, with Exeter trio Richard Capstick, Rusiate Tuima and scrum half Sam Maunder returning for a second year.

Of the 32 players, only three have not played for England, including Bath's Gabriel Hamer-Webb, who has yet to represent his country at age-grade level.

The squad will compete in the U20 Six Nations Championship which begins next month, as well as in this summer’s World Rugby U20 Championship in Italy.

England U20s are led by Dickens and his side will open their Six Nations campaign against France in Grenoble, on Saturday February 1 (KO 2000 GMT).

The squad will convene at Bisham Abbey national sports centre on Sunday (Jan 5) as they continue their preparations for that first Six Nations fixture.
