Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Ahead of his appearance for England Under-20 at Franklin's Gardens this Saturday, we blitzed Saints scrum-half Alex Mitchell with a selection of questions sent in via social media...

How does it feel to pull on the England jersey?
It's obviously a great honour to put on the England shirt, and an exepereince I'll never forget

How much are you looking forward to the game at Franklin's Gardens?
Massively looking forward to the game at FG. It's a great atmosphere there, especially as the home team, and hopefully be similar for our England game on Saturday

What’s your experience of the Under-20 camp been like?
It's been a very rewarding experience. It's a great mix between hard work and enjoyment, I've learnt a lot and it's a really relaxed atmosphere

Which has been your favourite game of the Six Nations so far?
My first start against Italy was a great experience, beating a strong Italy side by 46 points. Hoping FG can top it though!

Who are you sharing a room with? Are they a good roommate?
Rooming with Max Wright - he's a great room mate, very relaxed, but always wakes up to Oasis in the morning for an alarm, which is abit unnerving

Who’s the joker of the camp?
Josh Caulfield or the Curry twins always like to mess about and make the lads giggle

Who’s the worst dressed?
Zach Mercer, he's got absolute dad fash

Who has the weirdest habit?
Not many bad habits apart from a few bogey eaters, but my roomie Max always has to wear the same boxers for every game. He's had to stich a new pair into them because they've ripped so much

What’s the Scotland-England rivalry really like?
It's always a big rivalry, they will be massively up for it and we have to match them physically, but looking forward to it

Who’s going to win on Saturday?
England!
