The U20 Six Nations champions will face Georgia on June 7 and 12 at the capital city’s Avchala Stadium as they gear towards the World Rugby U20 Championship, which begins on June 29 in South Africa.

The two sides battled to a 1-1 series draw last year before England finished fourth in the World Championship and Georgia finished eighth. England won the first encounter 41-36 before Georgia got their revenge with a 40-38 victory in the second match.
