Mallinder to captain Under-20s in Championship semi

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Saints back Harry Mallinder will lead out England Under-20s as they take on South Africa in the semi-finals of the World Rugby Under-20 Championship.

Starting at fly half, Mallinder will captain an England side who progressed to the knock out stages of the competition having won all three of their pool stage matches against Italy, Scotland and Australia.

“In attack we need to be sharp, clinical and take the opportunities that come our way," head coach Martin Haag commented. "We are anticipating a big battle as you would expect in a semi-final.

“The players are hugely motivated about playing in a home semi-final which is a once in a life-time opportunity for them at this level.”

“We want to make that stadium a fortress for us and there is no better feeling for those players standing on that pitch and singing the national anthem with a full stadium behind them.”

The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 3.
