Devoto starting for Wales test

13 March 2013

Bath Rugby Academy full-back has been selected to start for England U20s as they prepare to face Wales in a winner takes all clash on Friday night, kick-off 19.35.

Wales are unbeaten in this season's Under 20 Six Nations campaign while England have lost once but have the greater points difference, meaning Friday's clash in north Wales is winner takes all.

Title holders England have brought wing Anthony Watson, prop Kyle Sinckler and hooker Nathan Morris into the starting XV and Hunter is looking forward to the match.

He said: "It'll be a tough game, but a big game in front of a sold out crowd. Wales have performed very well in this competition and they've been quite consistent with their selection – we'll approach this one as we would any other, we want a good performance from the guys."
