To ensure that all players have an equal opportunity on the pitch, alternative sets of 15 players will take the field for the first and second half of the match. Fin Baxter, who has previously represented England, will captain the team in the first half, with centre Seb Atkinson taking over in the second.

“We’ve had two camps, this week and last, which helped bring the group together and kick start our Six Nations preparation,” said Alan Dickens. “The training has gone really well and the commitment from the players has been fantastic.
