Fin Smith starts for England Under-20s

Warriors fly-half Fin Smith will start for England Under-20s as they face France in round two of the Six Nations Under-20 Summer Series at the Payanini Centre in Verona on Wednesday June 29 (kick-off  4pm BST).

Smith won his sixth Under-20s cap when he also started for England as they were defeated by South Africa last week.

But there are no places for his club-mates, hooker  Finn Theobald-Thomas and full-back Tobi Wilson, who both came on as a second half replacements in the series opener, in the matchday squad for the France match.

England men’s Under-20 head coach, Alan Dickens said: “Taking the positives from our game against South Africa has been important as we prepare for tomorrow’s game.

“The players have been training hard and are looking forward to facing France in round two.”
