England head coach Steve Bates has made eight changes to the side that defeated Italy last week Friday. England will be wary of the Scotland team who played extremely well against Ireland and will also look for some sort of revenge as the loss against Scotland in 2018 cost them the u/20 Six Nations Championship.

Bates made eight changes with Kai Owen, Samson Ma’asi and Joe Heyes comes in to complete a new front row, while Alex Coles returns at lock. Manu Vunipola starts at fly-half with Cameron Redpath and Ollie Lawrence named in midfield with Arron Reed coming in on the wing.

Tom Willis continues at captain while Tom de Glanville will also switch to full back for England. On the bench hooker Alfie Barbeary, lock Jon Kpoku and scrum half Gus Warr are in line for their England U20s debuts.
