Mitchell to face Australia with England U20

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

England Under 20 have named their team to face Australia in the third round of the World Rugby U20 Championship, with Saints' Academy scrum-half Alex Mitchell starting the fixture on the bench.

With a try a piece from each of England's games so far, including the clever finish below, Mitchell is thriving at the tournament so far.

Taking on Australia at the Avchala Stadium (5.30pm BST) tomorrow, England will be hoping to secure their third win of the tournament and go unbeaten through the pool stages. 

The game will be streamed via World Rugby's Facebook page and highlights of all the day's action, including Mitchell's game, will be featured on ITV 4.
