Saints back Harry Mallinder has been selected at fly half for England for their Under 20 Championship fixture against Scotland on Saturday.

Last time out against Italy, Mallinder put in an impressive performance at centre, scoring 12 points with the boot and winning the man of the match award as he led England to a 48-10 victory in their opening fixture.

“Training has been good, and we continue to build and improve each week, so I’m delighted with how we are developing as a squad,” said Maetin Haag, England’s head coach.

“We’ve picked a strong side, making some changes but largely keeping a lot of the same combinations,” said Haag. “We are confident we’ve picked a team that can go out and win against Scotland.

England’s fixture against Scotland takes place at the Manchester City Academy Stadium, but Scotland will be without Rory Hutchinson, Mallinder’s colleague from the Saints, who will miss the rest of the tournament through injury.

The match will broadcast live on Sky Sports 3, with coverage starting at 17:45.
