Bath Rugby's Ollie Devoto keeps full-back spot for England under-20s' crunch Six Nations clash in Wales
Ollie Devoto has retained his place at full-back for England's Under-20s Six Nations decider against Wales on Friday night.
Wales are unbeaten in this season’s tournament, 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 head coach Rob 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.”

Friday will be Hunter’s final match at the helm of the Under-20s before he moves to Exeter Chiefs, he has won 19 of his 24 matches in charge, but says that he can’t afford to think about this one being his last just yet: “It hasn’t really crossed my mind to be honest, the focus is on Friday night.”
The game kicks off at 7.35pm at Parc Eirias, Colwyn Bay, and will be screened live on S4C (Sky channel 134).
