Spurling gets England U20 call
Dual-registered Saracens and Blues youngster Scott Spurling has been named in England’s U20 revised Elite Player Squad.
They have made two changes with Harlequins centre Harry Sloan and Leicester Tigers wing Henry Purdy coming into the 32-man group
Head Coach Rob Hunter’s squad will look to defend their U20 Six Nations title over the next two months before heading to France for the IRB Junior World Championship in June.
Hunter said: “We’ve made a couple of changes to the squad and brought in two guys who have been performing consistently well at their club.
“Both Harry and Henry are talented players and we’re excited to see what they can bring.
“Our focus at the moment is solely on our own preparation and that first Six Nations game against Scotland in Plymouth.
“They’ve had a warm up game and they’ll be coming at us from the first whistle, but we’ve trained well and we’re looking forward to getting out there on February 1.”
England host Scotland at Plymouth Albion on February 1 , go to Dubarry Park, Athlone, to face Ireland the following week, entertain France at Worcester’s Sixways home on February 23, are home to Italy at Northampton’s Franklin’s Gardens on March 9 and take on Wales at Parc Eirias, Colwyn Bay, on March 15.
