Northampton Saints duo Lewis Ludlam and George Furbank have been named in the England A matchday squad to face Scotland A at Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Sunday (27 June, kick-off: 2pm).
The Saints Club co-captain and 24-year-old fullback will start the friendly fixture on the bench as England continue their preparations for their summer series of fixtures, with clashes against USA and Canada on the schedule over the coming weeks.
While caps will not be awarded for this game, 11 uncapped players will start for England A who will be led by head coach John Mitchell.
Mitchell said: “This squad has grown over the past few weeks, is full of energy and competition and the players have given their all.
“Now the next step is for us to work even harder at becoming more cohesive in our final stages of our preparation.
“We are looking forward to a tough game against Scotland A. We’ve prepared well and will arrive ready for it.”
England will then play two Test matches at Twickenham Stadium – against USA (Sunday 4 July, 2pm KO) and Canada (Saturday 10 July, 3pm KO).
