Ojomoh and Hamer-Webb named in England U20s side for test against Scotland

5 February 2020

England U20s Head Coach Alan Dickens has named his side to take on Scotland on Friday in Edinburgh, which includes Bath Rugby's Max Ojomoh and Gabe Hamer-Webb (kick-off 19:30pm GMT).

Dickens has made two changes to the side that defeated France 29-24 in their opening fixture of the U20 Six Nations Championship.

Harvey Beaton replaces Luke Green in the front row, while Freddie Steward comes in for injured Josh Hodge at full-back.

There are two changes among the replacements also, Josh Gray coming in for Jack Clement, while Ollie Sleightholme is also named as a finisher.

Performance Director Andy Rock said: "To see Max and Gabe retain their place in the starting team for this week after a strong performance against France is a real reinforcement of the work they are both doing, and the levels of performance they are producing.

"It was a proud moment for everyone at the Club to see them make their U20s debuts last week, it’s been a great journey to see them both go on in the past few years in particular.

"These games and the weeks spent in England camp are great experiences, they are testing themselves against the best young players from other nations and we know they will come back to us next week full of energy, and ready to contribute to our preparation into Worcester."
