The French connection

From Bod’s hat-trick to Sexton’s drop-goal, no opponent has defined this Irish rugby century quite like France

Head coach Alan Dickens has named his 32-man Engand U20s squad for the Six Nations Under-20 Summer Series in Italy.


The annual U20s World Championship was cancelled back in February due to Covid, so a separate competition that includes Six Nations sides as well as South Africa and Georgia will instead take place in Italy between June 24 and July 12.

England U20s head coach Dickens said: “We’ve had a productive time in camp in Newcastle over the past week, and two successful training games against Scotland that have provided great match play opportunities as we prepare for the summer series.

“We’ve got a great mix of players in the squad. Some with experience of playing at U20 level already and a number of players who are new to the squad. I’m really pleased with the way they are all supporting and learning from one another.”

“We have challenging opposition in our pool games against South Africa, France and Ireland. We’ve prepared well and the squad looks forward to the challenges an international series such as this provides.”


Emeka Ilione, who has been capped six times at U20 level, will captain the side.
