England Under-20 call for Mallinder and Mitchell

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Saints Academy backs Harry Mallinder and Alex Mitchell have been named in England's Under-20 Elite Player Squad for the 2016 campaign.

For Mallinder it is a second straight call into the setup, while Mitchell, who joined the Saints in the summer, will be looking to graduate from England Under-18 honours when the Six Nations begins in February.

The 32-man squad will also be tasked with tackling a home Junior World Chapionship later in the summer, as Manchester hosts the tournament for the first time.

Ian Peel heads into his first campaign as head coach of the team and is looking forward to the challenge of maintaining a strong record for England at Under-20 level.

"I believe we have a really strong group and if they work well together and perform well, they will have success, it is about being the best they can individually and as a team.

"We have the season to help them improve individually but also the challenge of bringing the talent together and putting it into strong team performances come the Six Nations and then into the World Championship."
