Mallinder to captain England in under-20s final

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Harry Mallinder will lead England out against Ireland on Saturday as they look to secure the 2016 World Rugby Under 20 Championship.

The side remain unchanged from their victory over South Africa in the semi final on Monday night, with Mallinder once again pulling on the number 10 jersey.

Speaking ahead of the match, which could see England win their third Championship at under-20 level since 2013, head coach Martin Haag said: “There were some tough calls to make in selection.

“The performance against South Africa was fantastic and because of that those guys have earned their places for the final game.

“It’s going to be a great occasion and for us it is about focusing on delivering at the highest level.

“We need to execute effectively and do the simple things well. There is a lot of emotion around these games which is why it’s important not to try and do anything differently in our approach.“

The match kicks off at 19:00 BST and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 3.
