Charlie Ewels and Max Clark will both start for England Under 18s tomorrow as they face Australia Schools tomorrow, kick-off 13.00, with Rory Jennings named on the bench.
Harlequins No. 8 James Chisholm – who made his Aviva Premiership debut for Harlequins against Newcastle Falcons on Sunday – captains the side and Head Coach John Fletcher says that he's excited to take on southern hemisphere opposition.
He said: "This is a great opportunity for our guys to go out and put in a performance against Australia. They only tour once every four years and we're looking forward to taking them on. They will play an expansive game, which suits us – we like to play with the ball in hand too, so it promises to be an exciting game."
The game will be streamed lived on RFU.com and youtube.com/officialrfutv.
