Four Sale Sharks Academy players all feature in the U20’s Six Nations Campaign finale.
Head Coach Steve Bates has rung the changes for England’s final U20’s Six Nations match at Franklin’s Gardens this Friday night.
In total there are eight changes to the starting line up, with a large number of the players selected making their first appearance of the tournament, one such player is Sharks Gus Warr who is also on loan to Fylde Rugby this season, who is on the replacements bench.
