Day starts JWC final; Hobbs-Awoyemi on bench

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Sunday's game is the first ever Junior World Championships final to feature only sides from the northern hemisphere, and should England lift the trophy they would be the first Under-20 team to lift the Six Nations and World titles in the same season.

Head Coach Nick Walshe says that Sunday's meeting will be a completely different beast from the Six Nations decider: "Wales are an excellent side - as they have shown throughout this competition and we're fully aware that it's going to be a tough game. We did well in the Six Nations to win at their place, but that game will have no bearing on the result.

"We have prepared well, we have recovered well after the New Zealand game - and we're ready for what promises to be an excellent final."

Sunday's game kicks off at 5:45pm, with live coverage on Sky Sports 2.
