Litchfield named in England U20s squad for Scotland clash

Northampton Saints centre Tom Litchfield has been named in Alan Dickens' England Under-20s squad to face Scotland in the second round of the U20 Six Nations on Friday. 

After making his U20s debut in last weekend's five-try, bonus-point 38–22 win against France, Litchfield will be looking to make an impact from England's bench tomorrow as Dickens' charges face off with Scotland at Cardiff Arms Park (kick-off: 2pm, live on the England Rugby Facebook page, Six Nations Rugby YouTube channel and S4C Clic). 

Dickens said: “It’s been a good week preparing for Friday’s match and the players have recovered well after a physical game against France last weekend.

“The players are coming together well as a group. We had 12 U20 debutants in the starting line-up for the last match, but I was very impressed with the way they handled themselves particularly coming back from 19-3 down.

“The players worked out where they needed to tactically adapt and they did it. We know that will again be important when we play Scotland.”
