Mitchell in England squad for Gardens visit

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Alex Mitchell is set to represent England on home soil after being named in the Under-20 squad for Saturday's Six Nations tie with Scotland at Franklin's Gardens.

The 19-year-old has featured in all three games so far, England coasting to bonus point wins in each and topping the table ahead of Ireland - a Grand Slam showdown looking likely if they can get past the Scots.

The scrum-half's inclusion also means that the Saints will yet again have a home ground representative, Mitchell following the likes of Tom Stephenson (2013) and Howard Packman (2014) in wearing the Red Rose in Northampton.

Kick off at the Gardens is 6:15pm, the game marking the culmination of a trilogy of England-Scotland clashes throughout the day. England Women kick off the action at 1pm looking to maintain their own 100% record, while the senior men - led by Dylan Hartley - will do likewise at 4pm.
