Off the back of a victorious Six Nations campaign in March, England will take on the Championship outfit at Butts Park.

The fixture comes two weeks before England face Georgia U20 in a two-match series in Tbilisi, which precedes the World Rugby U20 Championship in July in South Africa.

“This week marks the beginning of our summer schedule in the U20 Men programme ahead of what will be an exciting few months,” Titterell said.

“We’ve incorporated many new faces to our wider squad this week who are experiencing their first taste of U20 level rugby. It’s been an incredibly rewarding few days seeing the progress made from involvements in U18 and U19 programmes and Mark, the coaches and I are encouraged by our preparation.

“Our principles of Speed, Attachment and Space have remained consistent to ensure further alignment with our capped and uncapped U20 players, which is imperative when facing a tough challenge in Coventry this week.”
