- England U18 name squad to face South Africa Schools A
- KO 1.30pm BST on 16 August
England U18s have made nine changes ahead of the second match of their end of season tour against South Africa Schools A on 16 August.
Changes include captain Gabriel Ibitoye starting at full back, Tom Parton moving to fly-half from the wing with Sedbergh School's Sam Moore moving to No 8.
"The changes were about giving everyone the opportunity to start so that's what we've done in the opening two games," said national academy development manager John Fletcher.
"What we've been trying to work on in training is building connections between players. We've been doing a lot of scenario-based stuff such as being eight points down or they need a drop goal to win the game or we need to score out wide. The players are building an awareness with each other."
England U18 lost their opening match 23-18 against France and Fletcher believes South Africa Schools A will be another big test for the side.
"We were disappointed with the first half performance against France but pleased with the second half. We just didn't have enough time to make it over the line from a results point of view."
He added: "The lads are having a great time. Our aim is to come to this beautiful country and see them enjoy themselves on and off the pitcht."
