One change to victorious Wales U20 side for England clash

Posted by

Wales U20 head coach Gareth Williams has made a single change to the starting XV that beat France last time out for the trip to face England at Kingsholm on Friday night, 7.45pm kick-off.

It comes at hooker where Will Griffiths gets the nod to start with Dom Booth dropping to the bench, with the rest of the team having taken advantage of the two weeks to recover from 90 minute shifts to beat Les Bleus at Colwyn Bay.

There are three changes to the bench though with Harri O’Connor replacing Archie Griffin as tighthead cover, Ed Scragg returning to the squad after featuring regularly last season to cover second row ahead of Rhys Thomas, and Luke Scully recovering from illness to replace Josh Thomas as outside backs cover.

Aside from that it is as you were for the young Welshman, who are looking to build on beating their English counterparts last season and get a first win over the border since 2016.

Wales U20: Jacob Beetham (Cardiff Blues), Frankie Jones (Aberavon), Bradley Roderick (Ospreys), Aneurin Owen (Dragons), Mason Grady (Cardiff Blues), Sam Costelow (Leicester Tigers), Ellis Bevan (Cardiff Met); Theo Bevacqua (Cardiff Blues), Will Griffiths (Dragons), Ben Warren (Cardiff Blues), James Fender (Ospreys), Ben Carter (Dragons), Ioan Rhys Davies (Cardiff Blues), Jac Morgan (Scarlets)(c), Morgan Strong (Ospreys)

Replacements: Dom Booth (Scarlets), Callum Williams (Scarlets), Harri O’Connor  (Scarlets), Ed Scragg (Dragons), Gwilym Bradley (Cardiff Blues), Dafydd Buckland (Dragons), Joe Hawkins (Ospreys), Luke Scully (Worcester Warriors)
